Our learning programs vary by age and are designed to equip children with the skills they’ll need for school and lifelong success.
We have a plan.
From teaching numbers and the alphabet to introducing subjects such as creative arts, music, and science, our teachers are perfectly equipped to start your child on a successful life of learning.
- Creative Arts
- Social Studies
- Physical Fitness
- Health and Nutrition
Exploring their own world.
Each TOP school houses an Open Windows Learning Studio (OWLS) designed to help kids discover new interests in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Freedom for children to explore the studio builds critical thinking skills, while teachers help cultivate the children’s imaginations.
“Our family could not be more thankful for TOP. The staff truly care about the whole child — physical, social, emotional, and cognitive. Our son finished attending TOP last year and is currently a kindergartener. We attribute TOP to him being top in his class in both reading and math!”
– Rachel & Josh H. | Parents, TOP South
Skills to bring home.
At TOP, high-quality, nutritious food is prepared on-site in our restaurant-grade kitchens. TOP schools meet the Gold Standard for the Child and Adult Care Food Program administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
We don’t want to stop there, though. We use mealtimes to teach table manners and skills that they can bring back into their homes.
Table Manners and Eating Habits
- Table manners
- Setting the table
- Clearing dishes
- Serving food
- Passing dishes
- Trying new foods
- Learning foods and food groups
Helping entire families.
Research shows that education level has a big effect on economic success. Our TOP Early Learning Centers College Scholarship Program helps parents go back to school and establish a meaningful career. It also helps qualified TOP graduates who have finished high school, reach their college and career goals.
In 2015, TOP Early Learning Centers partnered with the Bank of America Charitable Foundation and Butler Community College to help TOP parents bridge gaps in financial aid and pursue their academic ambitions. In 2022, the program was expanded to include TOP graduates, who have finished high school – all because,
“Brighter Futures Begin Here.”
