What Parents Say
From a Speech Setback to GEP Programme
Niklaas’ achievements would not have been possible if not for the intervention, guidance and support that Teacher Margaret Nonis accorded him and me as a concerned mum. Though her speech & drama class then was full, she welcomed Niklaas with open arms and equipped him with the skills and confidence with which to interact with other children and adults alike; Though it was not in scope, she put in additional hours outside of curriculum to work with Niklaas one-on-one to speed up his rehabilitation and progress; Through her dedicated writing program, Teacher Rachael Nonis honed Niklaas’ writing skills – nurturing him into the imaginative, creative and expressive writer that he is; Through Uncle Fred’s loving yet firm ways, a father figure away from home indeed, Niklaas learnt what it means to be consistent, disciplined, steadfast and of how far grit and determination can bring you – further than you can imagine.
I often struggle to articulate to others what my boys learn and take away from LoveKids, particularly parents whose primary focus is on honing their children’s academics and who brush off speech & drama as ‘sing and dance’ that only preschool kids require – oh how wrong they are. While I greatly appreciate the support LoveKids renders on the academic front, it’s the unseen that I appreciate most – how teachers help keep their charges centred, develop their EQ skills, strengthen their emotional quotient, serve as their confidant and moral compass – all with an aim to bringing out the best in them and setting them up for life.
LoveKids is family to us and will never be far from our prayers and hearts. Thank you for everything.

With Confidence a Child can Shine!
My daughter had serious separation anxiety issues. She also had problems articulating in English then. In Primary 1, she had problems understanding English and Maths questions. We were so worried that she may not be able to cope in school. With Teacher Nonis’ guidance and encouragement, Rui Teng has proven herself. Not the cream of the crop but a shining star in her own, unique way. We started to notice the change in her when she was in Primary 4. Things started to change in a good way. She was awarded Good Progress in Primary 4. She achieved one of the Top 3 in her Primary 5 class and this year (2020), she was one of the Top 3 in her Primary 6 class.
English has always been her weakest link. We were very concerned and worried that she would not be able to attain decent PSLE results. We thus tried DSA for her, hoping to get her an enrolment in the school of her choice.
She was offered enrolment from two Secondary Schools. Despite having secured enrolment in the schools, she continued working hard for her PSLE. Never in my dreams would I have thought that she would do so well in her PSLE! She obtained an A for her English. She is really an example of: With confidence, a child can shine as bright; With perseverance, a child can overcome all the hurdles.
Thank you for everything, Teacher Nonis and LoveKids!

From K2 to P6 Confidence for PSLE Programme
I am very thankful to you in giving him the encouragement and extra support prepping him for this PSLE this year. Both you and Margaret have been a pillar of support for him and me. We wouldn’t achieve so much if its not for the both of you. Thank you!

Nursery Level Speech and Drama
The role play and dramatization of the characters have significantly helped to develop his keen interest and knowledge in the various subjects, especially on dinosaurs, outer space, astronauts, the fairytale series (sleeping beauty, cinderella, little mermaid).
At 4 years old, my hubby and I were pleasantly surprised when one day he came to tell us about the different types of dinosaurs that he learnt from his speech and drama class and he was able to pronounce their long names correctly.
Luke will also tell us about Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, Ursula in Little Mermaid (he even pretends to speak like the sea witch), the Martian Rocks, etc.
