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 30 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) 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 collect documentation, fill out developmental screenings and meet with parents for conferences.  Parent communication is very important to us, we e-mail lesson plans weekly so parents understand what their child is learning.

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