Our Abakus Enrichment Journey

Abakus Math and Science Enrichment was founded in 2017 by Jeanne-Mari Frenzel and Lize Maree. The first branch was opened in Stellenbosch in January of 2017 in the Old Post Office building and catered for 30 learners and 2 team members.

In 2018 the Stellenbosch branch moved to a new location, the Valerida Centre, where it is still situated today.

In February of 2021, Abakus Enrichment opened a new branch in Paarl in Lemoenkloof and is currently situated at 9 Dorp Street, next to the old Knopiesfabriek.

In less than 5 years, Abakus Enrichment grew from providing extra classes to 30 learners to accommodating over 300 learners and a team of 2 people to a team of 11 teachers.

At Abakus Enrichment, we are very proud of where we came from and how we expanded our family, and we are very excited about what the future holds!
