DUVALL _ Braithburn Academy in Duvall is under new ownership.
The owner, Shannon Burkhalter, bought the center, which offers
child-care, preschool and before- and after-school programs, in April.
Burkhalter decided to make a career change after the birth of
her daughter. She spent 17 years in the child-care field, holding positions
as a teacher, center director and district manager, and wants to use her
experience to create excellent programs. Her academy focuses on positive
guidance, developmentally appropriate learning, safety and fun.
