It all began with a dream and a stirring in the heart of Margaret Nonis. She pursued her calling to love kids and turned it into a reality, with the inception of LoveKids on 7 April 2004. Drawing her inspiration from the bible quote, “Faith, Hope and Love, and the greatest of these is Love,” (1 Corinthians 13:13) LoveKids was born.
At the heart of her mission, she sees the need for every child to shine with Confidence and EQ skills in all aspects of life. What better way to do this than to instill it in our kids’ very experience of learning?
At LoveKids, Confidence and EQ skills are weaved into our lessons; Speech and Drama for Nursery and K1, Journey to P1 for K2s, Confidence for English for P1 to P4, and Confidence for PSLE for P5s and P6s.
