With the 9 month old, the toddler/infant area provides a nice place to let the little ones move without needing to be right on their tail. However, I have found that there really isn't any place within Habitot that isn't suited for a little one on the move.
As the adult, my favorite part of Habitot is the grocery/kitchen area. I love this area because I get to play "customer" while all the kids, not just the kids I nanny for, pretend to cook for me, serve me food, and interact with me in such a fun way. In some ways the kids and the adults get to switch roles and I can watch as their brains and imaginations grow.
Habitot provides a safe environment for young kids to interact with others in their community doing imaginative play, art, water play, and even household activities. I believe this organization is a necessary part of the community and I will be taking the kids I nanny for and eventually my own children there for years to come.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Watching the children develop their imaginations. I've also watched the boys take many things that they have learned or done at Habitot and incorporate those things into their lives at home, school or even on the playground.
