The History of Toptots
“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn” – Maria Montessori
Toptots was founded in 1994, in response to a need felt for parents to be able to meet other parents and to learn how to have quality interaction with their children. Our programme caters for young children from 8 weeks till 4 years of age and has been well researched and developed. At Toptots we believe in continually improving our product to meet the demands of our clients, are in strong support of our team members, and partake in vigorous marketing, all to promote our underlying philosophy of ‘Grow with Love’.
Our passion is Early Childhood Development.We are here to help nurture your child and provide you with stimulating ideas while making learning fun for your little one. We have a very powerful support program in place, and will guide you every step of the way with our practical hands-on approach. Our classes provide the following:

Since the day it opened, Toptots has shown strong, continued growth. There are now 25 franchised Toptots branches across South Africa and one in Dubai UAE.
Our work is making sure that the members of our Toptots team are happy in their business, and to make sure that the business helps them achieve whatever their personal goals may be. Our team members are passionate about children and what they do and this shines through in their classes.
~ To find the special gifts in each child, to set them on the road to success with love.
~ To enrich the lives of children, to give them a head start in life and help them reach their full potential.
~ To honour the work that parents do with their children. We believe that being with your children, and being involved in their lives with love, is the single most important thing that you will ever do with your life. We hope to help grownups understand their children better, and to promote the bond of love between parents (or caregivers) and children.
~ Children are the most important assets that a country has. We aim to spread love across Southern Africa, and to positively influence the lives of thousands of children and their parents.
~ For our Toptots team members to be successful, enthusiastic, and committed to the same goals.
~ For each Toptots team member to benefit from the energy and knowledge being created by their own contribution. To maintain a strong team spirit, and open channels of communication.
~ We strive to always provide excellent service to our parents and children, to achieve superior standards of operation, and excellence in our provision of education. All the things that you do with your life end when your life ends, except for what you do to shape and create the future. Children represent unlimited potential for the future. By positively influencing a child, you will change the destiny of the world into infinity.
“All children wear the sign: “I want to be important NOW” Many of our juvenile problems arise because nobody reads the sign.” ~ Dan Pursuit
