Climbing the Ladder to Educational Success

At Tots at the Top, we help pre-school age children bridge the gap between free play and the routine of school. We do so through gentle structure — and our own dusting of glitter, sparkle and a sprinkle of magic!

Through topics carefully linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage of the National Curriculum, Tots at the Top host hour long weekly themed sessions during term time, holiday sessions and parties too. During that time children create two art activities to take home, explore a play table and enjoy puppets, stories or songs.

Tots at the Top aims to help children:

  • Be inspired to learn and expand their knowledge
  • Develop ideas through creativity and imagination
  • Grow in confidence whilst learning to socialise and respect others
  • Improve speaking, listening, and fine motor skills
  • Foster problem-solving and independent minds
  • Learn how to learn, preparing them for school

Jane and Anne founded Tots at the Top in 2010 and between them have 32 years of experience working with children. They have the know-how and are eager to share it with franchisees so as many children as possible can climb the ladder to educational success.
