SmartKids Child Care & Learning Center in Washington, PA
Since 1996, SmartKids Child Care & Learning Center in Washington, PA has served as the child care parents trust to provide quality education. We believe childhood is an essential period of time for growth and development, and through our indoor and outdoor classrooms and learning centers, we strive to help children not only become prepared for success in school, but for success in life as well. We are proud to be a Keystone 4-STAR rated system, and we are open six days a week with extended hours until 8 p.m., unlike most other child care centers. Children from 6 weeks to 12 years old are welcome, and we have age-appropriate curriculums for each age group.

Shauna Krivanek, Director
Hello! My name is Shauna and I have been the Director at SmartKids in Washington since October 2018. I graduated from Keystone Oaks High School and continued my education at Point Park University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science in 2011. I went on to obtain my Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Carlow University in 2015. After teaching Pre-K Counts for three years I decided to go back to school to earn my Director’s Credential through Carlow University in 2017. I currently continue to further my education and professional career through our Professional Development Courses.
My husband (David) and I have two ragdoll cats (Sheldon & Penny). I enjoy traveling, being outside and spending time with my family and friends.
I can usually be found in the office at the Washington location or helping out in the classrooms. If you have any questions or would like to come and tour the facility please give me a call!
