Meet Our Director

Meet Our Director, April Bellard

Hello! My name is April Bellard, and I have had the honor of working within the Early Education Childhood Community for over 10 years! In December 2006, I received a dual degree in Elementary Education/Early Childhood Education Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Auburn University in Montgomery, AL;  giving me the opportunity to begin my professional career working as a 5th grade Math/Science teacher in Montgomery, AL.

I have been working as a Center Director at the Sunshine House for about 4 months, and I am excited about working with a team of teachers who are dedicated in providing the best quality care to all children enrolled at our facility. I look forward to meeting with you, and I hope that your journey to finding a high-quality childcare center lead you to finding us!
