Lubov means Love

Within a bright main floor classroom, our program provides a clean, safe, Christian environment. It is an inclusive program where all children are welcome and may develop socially, emotionally, and intellectually at their own ability and rate. We include an introduction to the Ukrainian language, culture, and customs and welcome families of any faith and culture.

Our Teachers

Pani Julia

My name is Pani Julia and I find so much joy in teaching children.  “The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.”  Alexandra k. Trenfor.  I have grown so much as an early years educator.  I love implementing Emergent Curriculum, which is using the child’s interests to build with, therefore creating the best custom learning and play experiences for them. I hold my ECE III, and 20 years of experience.  I am committed to each family to help their child learn and grow through a variety of learning styles that will touch all of their developmental needs.  I look forward to creating long lasting relationships with all the children, their families and within the community. 

Pani Olha

My name is Pani Olha, originally from Ukraine. I have a background as a biology teacher in my home country. I have my CCA. Currently, my family and I live in North Kildonan. One of my greatest joys in life is spending time playing with children, as their boundless curiosity and enthusiasm never fail to bring a smile to my face. I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of you soon. Best regards,  Pani Olha

History of Immaculate Heart of Mary Lubov Nursery School (Sadochok)

Lubov Nursery School has been a part-time, non-profit nursery school since 1989. We are
licensed under the Manitoba Government Day Care Act and are required to abide by the regulations set
out in this legislation. There is a maximum enrollment of 20 children per class and two qualified early
childhood teachers. All teachers are required to have current CPR and child abuse registry checks.
For 26 years we operated as St. Anne Lubov Nursery School. In Sept. 2015, we became a satellite
nursery school for Immaculate Heart of Mary School. We now operate as Immaculate Heart of Mary
Lubov Nursery School or IHM Lubov Nursery School.
