Before and After School Care
Schoolmates is a fee-based program that provides before and after school child care for elementary school aged children (grades K - 5) during the academic school year and full day care during the summer and vacation periods. Schoolmates classrooms are located at each of the three elementary schools in Piedmont: Beach, Havens and Wildwood. A licensing packet is required to enroll into the Schoolmates program. New families can stop by their designated Schoolmates site to complete a licensing packet and receive instructions for online registration. For more information regarding Schoolmates, please contact send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (510) 420-3070. Click here for more info.
After School Enrichment
Our volunteer-run program provides fun and engaging after-school classes for your Havens students. We are also proud to contribute all profits from ASE into the Havens Parents Club general fund, helping with initiatives such as classroom support, teacher professional development & student STEAM materials.

Havens Dad's Club
Join the Dads Club to connect with other dads at Havens!
We host a number of fun events throughout the year, including a Welcome Dads BBQ, the Spring Swing dance, and our tentpole community fundraiser, HDC Poker Night (which brings together 100+ players from across Piedmont).
HDC events have funded many school improvements, including the campus mural, classroom Chromebooks, teacher professional development, and outdoor gear (look for the big blue blocks during recess).
Joining this group is a fun way to support our kids and get involved. Please email the Havens Dads Club president, Roger Tsai, at email@example.com to learn more.
