Our Aims and Business Ethic
Our main philosophy at Toptots is to “grow with love.” We are passionate about this aim. We work to fulfil it by encouraging growth. Growth of the little children who come to us, growth of the parents, as they learn to handle new relationships and teaching skills with their children, growth of you as a franchise owner (in terms of personal enrichment and business skills), and of course, growth of Toptots as a whole. We believe that a country’s children are the greatest asset that it has, and therefore on a broader level, we feel that we are playing a constructive role in the future of South Africa.
We want to encourage the parent to become involved with their child as much possible, as this is the best gift they can ever give their child. To this end, we try and demystify Early Learning. Even though we use a lot of technical educational methods, ideas and terminology, we try and explain it to the parents in such a way that they feel more competent, understand their child better, and slowly start to use good teaching techniques naturally with their own child. The long-term effect of this positive relationship, we hope, will be as powerful in the child’s life as any early learning that may occur. We also provide a gentle alternative to being separated from mum.
What does it take to become a Toptots Franchise owner?
We like to believe that we all operate together in a happy Toptots family. It is therefore important to us that prospective franchisees will become suitable family members.
