About Tott’s Early Learning Center in Farmington

We are a High Scope based center in Farmington, MI. We care for children from 2 months to 5 years full time, as well as our afterschool program, and provide a range of age-appropriate resources and activities to encourage their development right up until they are ready to join school.

Who We Are

Tott’s Early Learning Center got its start in Farmington in 2006 by Wanda Tott-Nathan as an in-home childcare provider. Over the years, Wanda’s business quickly grew and is now a set of two licensed centers. Now it is a family business, with Wanda’s husband Nate as senior CFO and both of their adult children, who attended Tott’s ELC when they were younger, returning as current members of staff!

We decided to do things a bit differently at Tott’s ELC by creating a space that fosters early learning in a fun and safe environment where children from infant through school age can explore the world around them.

We believe our innovative approach gives children a bright and positive start in life as we encourage both exploration and discovery as well as emotional intelligence and building friendships.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

Here at Tott’s Early Learning Center, our Company Values are at the heart of everything we do. After all, you wouldn’t want to send your child to a preschool that had different values and beliefs than you, would you? 

Children’s joy and happiness is a big part of their learning. At Tott's ELC, we encourage them to have fun as a part of their education, with child-led activities which are adapted to their abilities and interests.

Love & Loyalty:

Totts ELC sticks to our passion; nurturing and educating children, treating each other with love and compassion.

Enthusiasm & Encouragement:

We live in the moment, celebrating the small accomplishments children make on a daily basis.


Totts ELC staff is committed to the growth and development of the whole child socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically


“Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.”


Totts ELC is committed to treating your child as an individual, focusing on their abilities not disabilities, and offering the support they need to become lifelong learners.


Our mission is to offer top-tier child care, enriching early education, and comprehensive family solutions, all designed to empower you as parents and ensure the well-being of our community.


In our vision at Tott’s Early Learning Center, we aspire to be more than just an educational institution; we aim to be a nurturing haven where your child’s boundless potential is not only recognized but celebrated.
