Top Cats


Top Cats was established in response to a need from parents with children attending our preschool, The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery, for quality before and after school care.

Like our preschool, we strive to provide a stimulating programme which caters for children’s different ages, sex and cultural backgrounds, whilst encompassing individual needs and interests.

We offer a high quality before and after school care programme with optional supervised homework sessions for primary aged children between the hours of 7:30 - 9.00 am and 3 - 6 pm Monday to Friday.

Top Cats is located at The Cat’s Pyjamas Preschool & Nursery, in a fantastic purpose-built room that has been designed with school-aged children in mind. An extensive outdoor area and a wealth of age-appropriate resources to keep children engrossed, provides an outstanding facility for children.
