"TOP's mission is to ensure that all children have an opportunity to succeed in school and improve their chances for success and happiness in their adult lives. TOP associates and families believe that education (and particularly early education) is key to living a rich and fulfilling life. TOP teachers will instill in TOP kids a hunger for learning, a belief in themselves, a respect for others, and the tools they will need to succeed. By 2010, TOP will open between three and five early learning centers within the Wichita, Kansas metropolitan area to serve many of Kansas' poorest children. TOP will also develop a successful best practice model for educating poor children and share it with others to encourage them to open early learning centers in other cities."
