My 2 yr old grand baby LOVES Habitot! It is ideal for his age group, as it provides free choice of a variety of educationally stimulating, creative activities, while engaging in side by side play and beginning sharing and social opportunities for this age group. Parents, grandparents or caregivers shadow their young ones, nurturing them, helping them as needed, and encouraging social skill support as needed. Additionally, the friendly, very helpful and positive staff facilitates the various activities, including art, the inexpensive "store", the toy lending library, the snack area, et. The care that goes into the staff's initiatives is seen in the beautiful choice of colors and textures used in the art activities, the special classes offered in music, cultural celebration, etc., I am so grateful to Gina and all the staff at Habitot for providing such a rich, affordable experience consistently for our very young, most precious toddler population.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Participating with my grand baby at least once weekly. Habitot provides an important niche, as this age group benefits more from parallel play and unstructured activities where the toddler can choose to move freely from one play station to another.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Open another branch in Alameda where I live!

The art station, including the huge canvas, great tempura color choices, and super home made play dough activites.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, nurturing, knowledgeable and helpful when needed.mm

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Duplicate itself in one or two additional locations in the Bay Area.

Ways to make it better...

I love it as is.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Maintaining staff needed for a high staff to toddler ratio.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank you for all you do for providing an extremely important community educational resource for toddlers.

I first started visiting Habitot with my niece in 2000 and have been going back again and again ever since with my other niece and now my own daughter. They all love the changing exhibits, the wiggle wall, the water room, the market, the art room, the face paints and the wind tunnel. Not only is it a fun place for the kids, it's a great resource for parents. Just the other day they had a water safety instructor from the YMCA in the water room and we plan to visit their upcoming car seat inspection event.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My child's enthusiasm for it. Also, the valuable services they've provided and the information available about child development.

Habitot is a beautiful indoor space for babies and toddlers to explore in a safe environment. My daughter is a curious 20 month old and we've been going to Habitot for almost a year now. I find her busy splashing water around in the water play area. She carefully picks out fruit for her play cart. She laughs as she dances in the wind tunnel area. She rides the little tractors and laughts at the puppets. This place is grace, although kind of pricey if you don't get a yearly membership.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my daughter's curiosity blossom.

kind and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity Habitot is an amazing safe space for kids to learn and explore... unlike similar places that are for-profit, Habitot welcomes children with all kinds of backgrounds... children with special needs, children of teen parents, diverse families, etc. They also promote community safety through their sessions and the carseat checks they sponsor, sessions on CPR for parents and baby-sitters, bike safety, water safety, etc. An amazing resource for the community!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

as a parent, community member, and occasional volunteer.

Habitot is a wonderful, safe space for toddlers (and parents) from very diverse backgrounds to come together for fun and learning. Unlike other local play centers that are for-profit, Habitot's services are accessible to families with limited resources through collaborations with community programs. They have a variety of programs to promote child health, safety, and early childhood education.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the hours of operation, and expand and improve the physical setting for Habitot.
