The next best place to home...
Mrs. Amanda has been a dedicated full-time employee here at Little Tot’s for the past fifteen years! She is a wife and mother of two, who enjoys reading, cooking, camping and spending time with family and friends.
Mrs. Amanda has an exceptional ability relating to children and their families; she most enjoys cuddling the little ones and exploring science and social studies concepts with the preschoolers.
Mrs. Amanda holds her Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood from Macomb Community College. She is currently attending Rochester College and working towards her bachelor's degree.
Miss Megan is our newest teacher! She began her employment here at Little Tot's in February 2017. Miss Megan is originally from California where she enjoyed teaching TaeKwonDo, spending time with her boyfriend, and all animals of any shape and size!
Miss Megan's most enjoyable part of the day is story time. She loves engaging the children and witnessing their happiness when they enjoy what she is reading.
Miss Megan is currently undecided on her major. She loves animals and children so will likely end up working with one or both!
I have owned and operated Little Tot’s for 26 years! I have over 28 years experience teaching and caring for young children. I am a wife and mother of four beautiful children. All four of my own children were raised alongside their friends at Little Tot’s. With family, work and school, I am honestly too busy for hobbies, but most enjoy spending time with my husband and kids. When time allows I love reading, decorating, designing, camping and trying my hand at amateur photography.
Education and recognition are very important to me. I began college as an adult. After plugging along trying to juggle all my life’s responsibilities, I graduated in 2002 with my Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education. I earned the honor of one of Macomb Community College ’s Most Distinguished Graduates in 2002 by having one of the highest GPA’s in the entire graduating class.
In 2004, Little Tot's received Accreditation through National Association for Family Child Care, we were honored for excellence in quality care. In 2004, I enrolled at Rochester College in their Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education degree program. I proudly graduated Summa Cum Laude with a cumulative GPA of 4.0 in December of 2006. At that time I was recognized for first in leadership by the national honor society Alpha Sigma Lambda.
In 2007, I was hired to in as an Instructor of Education in the Early Childhood Studies program at Macomb Community College. Also in 2007, Little Tot's went through the renewal steps for national accreditation. Little Tot's was reaccredited through NAFCC.
In 2011, I graduated from Oakland University in the Master of Education program with a 3.97 cumulative GPA! I was awarded a Master of Education in Early Childhood Education. The day after graduation I was asked to become the instructor of record for a new child development course at Macomb Community College.
In 2017, I was hired in as the Program Coordinator for the Education: Early Childhood program at Macomb Community College! My future goal is to obtain my Ph.D. In doing so, I plan to continue sharing the knowledge I have gained with other early childhood professionals in a college classroom, while still providing excellent care to the children enrolled here at Little Tot's.
The most enjoyable part of my career is the connections that I have with each family enrolled. I am grateful for the amazing children and parents that I have had the pleasure of knowing and caring for over the years, and for the awesome privilege I have had to see my own children raised within such a fantastic group of people.
