astro-excel homework center
The business started as a dedication to Miss Kearns' mother who lost her life to cancer in April 2021. Mrs. Kearns was an aspiring teacher and aftercare owner. After moving to the Netherlands, she decided to close her business and spend some quality time with her husband.
"I spent years helping my mother in her aftercare. It was here that I observed the impact of a well structured and loving teacher. She provided learners with love, warmth and dedication. My love and passion for kids was born here. After losing her, I decided to re-open the aftercare so that my mother's legacy could live on. My aim is to bring happiness, kindness and peace into a world where that is sometimes hard to find." Miss I. Kearns
Our Education Philosophy
Ilusca (homework centre teacher) was one of the best tutors I have ever been taught by as she is very friendly and approachable which allowed me to ask my questions openly, she was always there when I needed help, now and then she would even go out of her way to help me via WhatsApp. I can honestly say that without her helping me, I would not be where I am today. For over 3 years Ilusca not only explained math simply and easily but was also very enthusiastic and full of energy when she interacted with me
The homework center has been very instrumental with the care of our daughters. During the period that they attended after care, the teacher always explained the importance of reading and up to today both our daughters enjoy reading. The time that was taken to schedule the study times ,play times during the After care stay has made an impact in that they still use the schedule for study time and now they call it me time. The patience that Ilusca displayed and the love for the children she assisted with we will always treasure.
My son Lethabo started attending Aftercare in 2016 when he was doing Grade 5 until 2018 when he was going for high school. He was naughty and lazy to do school work. After joining the Aftercare he became a changed boy and gained interest in his school work. The Aftercare teacher was so dedicated and gave her time to understand and be loving to the kids. The kids loved her, and were free around her. She had her way of making them enjoy doing their school work. The Aftercare was few meters away from school and there was a transport to move the kids from school to Aftercare. Lethabo is currently in Grade 10 now and he is a responsible young man, thanks to the Aftercare.
