Meet the Team

Joanna Brown - Centre Director

Joanna Brown

Centre Director

My name is Joanna Brown, I was appointed Centre Director of Busy Bees Sunderland Fulwell in July 2013.

I have 30 + years experience in childcare and I have been a Nursery Manager for  over 15 years in various settings.

I have a BA Hons Degree in Leadership and Management and I have a Level 4 in Childcare.

I spend my weekends with my partner and daughter Molly who is 22 years old. My surprise Christmas present in 2016 was a beautiful Bichon Frise puppy named Winston. My time is now spent trying to train him, or maybe him trying to train me.

My philosophy is make every moment count.

The year ahead looks very exciting with events planned and lots of ideas to enhance the learning environment for children.  

My nursery team work very hard to provide outstanding childcare and learning opportunities for the children attending. The nursery is set in a unique building which used to be a church and this adds to the character and personality of the nursery.
