I need recommendations for a centralized (as close as it can be) to all of the main attractions such as Florence, Siena, Elba, etc.
I also want to be within reasonable driving distance or closer to a family friendly beach, I have a 4 year old.
I don't have a preference of the type of accommodation, I'm focused on locations and accessibly to all that Tuscany has to offer.

With those three destinations in mind, you have drawn a fairly large triangle to be visiting. I suggest that you look in the Volterra area for accommodations which would put you about equal distance from everything you have listed. Not to mention you will find yourself surrounded by some pretty awesome scenery.
However, you might find that the Montespertoli or San Gimignano area will keep you close to the major sites - sacrificing your proximity to the coast and the Island of Elba. As for the four year old...they might enjoy splashing around in a private pool instead of a family friendly beach...that also means a bit more relax time for you as well.
I have visited the first four in this list and they are all very suitable both for position and for a 4 year old.
