About Us

LITTLE READERS was established in Singapore in 1993. We are the pioneers in Phonics & Reading in Singapore under the flagship programme, 'The Reading Programme (Phonics and Speech)'. Most of the classes were run at RC Centres, Community Centres, PCFs & Childcare Centres. Little Readers grew to a staggering 150 centres island wide, 101 teachers and more than 8000 students.

In 2008, Ms Mendoza created another very successful pre-school programme, GENIUS TOTS *Playgroup

*Pre-Nursery *Nursery for Toddlers & the very young from 15 months to 4.5+ years of age. 

Childhood development is an important stage of life and provides a foundation for future growth as an individual. Helping children develop and learn is our passion, and we offer *Playgroup *Pre-Nursery *Nursery left & right brain development programmes in Sengkang (between Hougang & Punggol), Kovan, Sembawang and Ang Mo Kio Hub, in Singapore, suitable for ages 15 months to 5 years  to enhance their skills and abilities. Whether your child is progressing fast or needs help to catch up with their peers, we will nurture their development in a calm, positive environment that reinforces their learning as they progress onto  LITTLE READERS’ Phonics Reading & Literacy, and Creative Writing Programmes or Primary One & Two English Enrichment suitable for children from 3.5 to 8 years old. Available at Sengkang and Punggol only.

Our Teachers are very stringently selected. Teachers who speak well with relevant qualifications and experience will still undergo an in-house training by Ms Mendoza.

Small Teacher to Student Ratio of only 1:5 or 8; 2:10;  2:12; 2:14 in a class. This gives our students more opportunity to progress at a comfortable pace. This gives the teachers the ability to provide some one-on-one time with the students as well.


We pride ourselves with teachers and staff who are warm and friendly. Students feel comfortable and relaxed in a homely, nurturing and loving environment. Our classes are air-conditioned, neat and clean. It is most conducive for Playgroup and Phonics classes.


All students are screened before they enter the classrooms. Our Centres are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised on a twice daily basis. We do what is necessary to stop infection and the spread of diseases.

Value for Money

What we have achieved from 1993 to 2002, we replicate the same spirit of giving the best we can. That equals to VALUE for your money.
