Oakhaven Parent Staff

We are a parent participation school. Who else but a fellow parent is going to be as dedicated to creating the best preschool, pre K, TK and summer camp experience for our children!

Oakhaven is a parent participation community.

Parents sign up for shifts in the classroom, office, pool and yard help, and/or monthly organization and cleaning projects.

For more information see Family Responsibilities.

These gals are a big part of why Oakhaven is so special. Our parent volunteers rotate cultural subjects and apply those subjects to these core areas: art, science, music, cooking, yoga, movement, cultural studies, Spanish and of course the ABC’s!

Barbara, Mom to Miles, who is now in college!!, and various kitties, has been a part of   Oakhaven and very good friend to Tulum forever!  Barbara has been in and out of Oakhaven over the years helping with our kiddos, the office, yard, pool duty, you name it.  When she is not here she is busy subbing and doing the after school programs at local schools, and helping at Sammies’s Friends.   She’s here subbing and visiting, doing arts and crafts as well as other great, fun stuff! Barbara has a great sense of humor, tells it like it is, and is always the loyal friend, plus she bake’s the best carrot cake ever, Tulum’s favorite, what’s not to love!!
