Recreation Department: Schoolmates Program

Program Overview

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.

Program Information

Extended care is provided at Schoolmates, from 7:30am – 9:30am and 2:00pm – 6:00pm, at an hourly rate of $8.25/hour for Piedmont residents and $10.50/hour for non-residents (effective August 2017).

Families will have the ability to register at a discounted online calendar rate, up to 12 hours in advance (24 hours in advance during summer and holiday breaks). This means that when your family needs additional extended care at Schoolmates, you will be able to register online as needed. Any registration after the online deadline window has expired, families will be charged, by Schoolmates staff, at the DROP IN RATE of $10.50/hour (no exceptions). As a reminder, CASH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON SITE.

Please Note: Once your family registers for Schoolmates hours, you cannot remove them. While your family will be able to ADD dates using the online system, any adjustments to your child’s online registration, such as sick credit, can ONLY be processed by Recreation Department Staff.

An online ACTIVE Net account is REQUIRED to register for Schoolmates and advanced enrollment is also STRONGLY RECOMMENDED prior to your child’s attendance into the Schoolmates program. To enroll into Schoolmates, please visit PRD’s ACTIVE Net website at:
