TOP TOTS believes every child should be treated and developed as a special, unique individual. Our hybrid approach to childcare and early education combines the self-directed and collaborative elements of Montessori-style learning, the active nature of play-based learning, and close parent-teacher partnerships espoused by Reggio Emilia. Our educational and developmental activities will allow your son or daughter to express who they are, and to learn and grow in a relaxed, safe, secure, supportive, and open multi-cultural community.
When caring for your child, we take security very seriously. Some of the enhanced security features at TOP TOTS include:
TOP TOTS Learning Center may be new, but our team is not. We are lifelong, experienced educators and scientists. Our commitment to help your child realize the lifelong benefits of education and community underlies our motto that “Great Starts Never End”.
