From an early age Mareike had a calling to become a teacher. At first, she ignored that calling and obtained her BCOM Marketing Honours degree. She then worked in the corporate world for 8 years before satisfying her call to go into teaching. She completed her PGCE and was a grade 6 maths teacher for most of her 9-year teaching career. At the end of 2017 Mareike left teaching to pursue an opportunity to run her own company. 2018 was a challenging year and Mareike realised that her passion will always be teaching and decided to honour this and return to the teaching profession.
For Mareike running and owning Toptots Alberton is not just a job but rather a fulfilment of her passion to impart knowledge to parents, so that together they can mould little people into the best that they can be and to give them the very best start in life.
