Hugs & Kisses Educare Centre is a daycare facility caring for children from one to five years of age, and has been operating for 24 years in the secure suburb of Sunninghill Gardens in Sandton, Northern Johannesburg, South Africa.
Hugs & Kisses is registered as a Close Corporation with its members being Sue and Steve Liebenberg. Sue is the Principal of Hugs & Kisses. Sue has a passion for children – with three biological children, four adopted children and one grandchild.
Sue qualified as a Grade 1 teacher, and taught at Rivonia Primary School. With the birth of her children, she opened a small playschool at her house, which she ran for seven years.
Steve, a Chartered Accountant, is the Financial Officer of Hugs & Kisses
In 1993 Steve and Sue bought the property at 11 Mirwani Road, in Sunninghill Gardens, and converted the house into an up-market daycare facility. It is a 1,500m2 fully walled property, with a large outside play area for the children.
In pre-Covid times, Hugs & Kisses was registered to care for 75 children, aged from one year to five years old (Grade 00). With social distancing, our capacity has been reduced to 45 children. We have four classes with four qualified teachers, five assistants and a cook.
