Shyne School (the)

Hello, I'm Katrina Brooke, Director of The Shyne School where we have been providing educational, play focused programs for young children since 1983.
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 flexibility we offer with three daily schedules and part or full week options for families.
I am very proud of my wonderful, dedicated teachers who are the heart of our school. We have very low turn over.
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 they show an interest in and extending their play. We also assess their individual learning and share the assessments with parents at conferences.
The staff also provides documentation, and a lot of parent communication, so parents understand what is happening and what they are learning so they will be prepared for Kindergarten when they leave The Shyne School.
