Meet Ms. Brenda


Ms. Brenda has been a licensed music educator for 23 years. She has been working for Brick schools since 1999. Throughout her career, she has worked in local preschools and daycare centers. She also owned her own family daycare center when her children were young. For the past four years, she has taught music and movement classes to infants and children up to age 5. She fell in love with this age group and has decided to go back to school to learn more.

She has recently obtained her P-3 teaching certificate and is pursuing a Masters of Arts in Teaching for Early Childhood Education and Students with Disabilities from Georgian Court University. She is excited for this new endeavor and to share her love of teaching littles with local families looking to enhance their children’s learning.

Sunny Bee Early Learning Center was created to provide children with the necessary skills to succeed in school. Our approach is to engage children in fun and meaningful play, which is when they do the most learning.

We offer:

Music Together– a music and movement program for infants and children and their families.

Piano lessons– for children ages 4 and older. Choose from in-home, online, or at our Brick location (starting in January).
Enrichment classes– children ages 3-6 will get to explore a variety of activities while integrating math, science, literacy, and the arts. Choose from online or in-person starting in January.
We are excited to have a new location to call home. We will be teaching at St. Raphael’s Episcopal Church, located at 1520 Route 88 in Brick.
