School Age Care

The mission of The Shyne School is to provide a place for children, their families, and teachers to come together and build a sense of community were everyone belongs. Children are supported while learning and growing in all areas of development. Social, emotional, cognitive, creative and physical developments are all of equal importance.

We strive to provide opportunities and guidance for children to develop critical thinking skills about others, their environment and the world around them. We support families by offering flexible, safe and affordable learning programs that exceed their expectations and state requirements.


  • Low turn over of caring, professional staff who serve as a resource and offer support to children and families through daily communication and parent conferences.
  • Homey classrooms in a picturesque wooded setting.
  • Toddler and Preschool programs for the whole child.
  • Understanding that children learn through play and investigation.
  • Finding out what the child is interested in, observing what they know, and helping them expand on that knowledge.
  • Providing safe and secure learning environments where children learn and grow into capable individuals.
  • Hosting enrichment classes on site.
  • Offering families year round learning programs.
  • Providing School-age transportation to local elementary schools K-6.
  • Having learning programs for children 12 months to 5 years of age and child care for 5 to 8 year olds.
  • Providing flexibility for family schedules and individual children.
  • Having annual family events and community projects throughout the year.


Shyne School DirectorHello, I am Katrina Brooke, Director of The Shyne School. We have been providing educational, play focused programs for young children for more than 27 years. At the Shyne School, we believe you have to plan your curriculum around the whole child and that all areas of development (social / emotional, cognitive, creative and physical) all hold equal importance. Children love all the hands on activities we provide. While parents appreciate the healthy home cooked meals and the  flexibility we offer with three daily schedules and part or full week options for families.

I am very proud of my wonderful, dedicated teachers, they are the heart of our school. They work together as a team so the children know all the teachers, not just their own. The teachers do a great job of observing the children and providing activities that show an interest in and extending their play. The staff also provides documentation, and  parent communication, so parents understand what is happening at their child’s school.

You can reach me at The Shyne School at (425)882-1981 or director@shyneschool.com

What power does play have in the lives of children today? Despite growing mountains of evidence that active, self-directed play is vital to young children’s development, a surprising number of parents and other adults question the value of time spent in play.
