Why Confidence?

Why should we focus on Confidence? Confidence is the belief in one's ability to succeed. Improving the ability comes with being prepared.

At LK Academy, we believe that confidence is needed in both the spoken as well as written components of the exam and it is prevalent in our everyday lives.

What Parents Say

"Time flies. My dearest daughter has been with LoveKids for more than 8 years. There are many more years to come as she will be continuing her secondary journey with LK Academy. I can still remember how desperate we were then - with a 3 year old girl (my daughter) who was traumatized by her short stay with her first Childcare Center. We were very blessed to meet Teacher Nonis, who changed my daughter's life...

Read More

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!"

Mum of Rui Teng, P6 (2020)
