The Faith Academy Early Education Center (EEC) offers a loving environment where the faculty strives to meet the needs of the whole child. It is a place where children are nurtured and where character training and development are both modeled and taught. 


Faith Academy has caring teachers who will partner with families in the development of their children during these very important, formative years. We offer a colorful, age-appropriate curriculum that is both engaging and educational.

The EEC curriculum is presented sensitively to reach every child and every learning style. A variety of extracurricular activities are organized throughout the school year. We understand that movement and learning go hand in hand. Your child could go on a "bear hunt" and have a "camp out" before traveling for a “day at the beach.”

Why Choose Faith Academy EEC?

Behind every well-run educational organization, there needs to be a leader who is determined to make it flow seamlessly. Faith Academy EEC has a shining example of just that. Our director, Tammy Shuck, has countless years in early education, and she exudes the spirit of love to all who enter. Her compassion is contagious and sets the tone for staff and students each day.

If you would like to learn more about our EEC program, please contact our director, Tammy Shuck. Setting up a tour will only cost some of your time, and we are confident you will leave knowing your child will feel welcome and loved at Faith Academy of Bellville.
