ANNELIZE VAN TONDER
In 1997 Annelize Van Tonder, Founder of Kingsley Private and All-In-One Education Center started with research on Hemispheric Specialization and more specifically the implications it has on the process of study.
After intensive research she opened the first All-In-One Education Center; formerly known as Brain Clinic; specializing in teaching a student the most time effective way to study according to his/her UNIQUE LEARNING PROFILE.
Kingsley Private uses; among others; Accelerated Christian Education System (ACE), a comprehensive educational system, driven by dedicated Educators
who motivate and support parents in their quest to help their children reach their maximum potential in school and in life. The ACE program
utilises results-driven processes rather than conventionally applied time-focussed education curricula.
At Kingsley we determine each student’s Unique Learning Profile (genetic) with God-given abilities and talents and has developed a learning approach that accommodates learners’ individual capabilities.
The curriculum makes it possible for the learner, to achieve their full academic potential. This is the foundation upon which future learning is built.
From preschool to grade 12, each learner discovers how to:
• Set goals and meet deadlines
• Develop critical-thinking skills
• Think creatively and independently
The ACE program covers the critical outcomes and minimum standards of the National Curriculum Statements (NCS) as prescribed by the Department of Education in South Africa. This includes Learner and Teacher Support Materials (LTSM’s).
MISSIONTo provide relevant individualized quality curriculum materials from pre primary to grade 12 levels enabling schools to provide academic excellence and produce Godly character in students.
VISIONReaching the world for Christ, one child at a time.
Each student works at his/her own pace according to his/her ability. We provide the bit-sized, manageable, achievable ACE curriculum materials.
These work texts, called PACEs, include self-instructional lessons and activities. Each level consists of 12 PACEs in each subject. Learners begin a PACE by noting the goals, the concepts they will learn, a Bible verse and a corresponding character trait. From the beginning of each PACE, the learners know what is expected and assumes the responsibility for their own learning. Explanations and full colour illustrations add excitement to each lesson, and innovative learning activities reinforce the text material.
Bible Based Material Our program does not focus on dagma, it accentuates moral values and Biblical principles in the life of each learner. Character traits such as honesty, kindness and loyalty are taught within the learner and teacher support materials. This Biblical character-training prepares the learner to deal with the joys and challenges of everyday life.
