Our Philosophy

Children are born ready to learn. The desire to discover and absorb is never more concentrated than during the first five years of life—and we only get one chance to do it right. We know that your decision to entrust your child’s early education to someone is a momentous one, and a privilege that is earned and should never be taken for granted.

That’s why at Habitots, our goals are to create a welcoming environment that reflects each child’s family, interests, cultures and differing abilities; build a warm relationship with every family that becomes a part of ours; and offer learning opportunities that stretch what every child knows about themselves and their capabilities.

At Habitots, we believe that:

  • Every child is unique, and a “one size fits all” approach to learning ultimately fits none.
  • Teaching children should not come from a place of ego or dictation. Adults in their lives should work cooperatively with one another as partners in their development.
  • Learning happens through play and reinforcement of teachable moments during a process that includes awareness, exploration, inquiry, and application.
  • To teach, we must first truly understand children, how they develop, and strategize on how to encourage and affirm their blossoming.

Programs Include

  • Infants
  • Toddlers
  • Preschool
  • Pre-K
  • School Age
  • Summer Camp

Habitots is so much more than daycare or childcare. We are proud to provide an exceptional preschool education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home.

Habitots Medford is an incredible childcare center. We are consistently impressed. The number of tangible activities they do with the infants/babies is unbelievable. The exposure to fine arts, music, food and activities is profound. We will always be grateful to have found Habitots and feel the staff (Miss Judy and Miss Kim) have had a great impact on our child's life long term. They are both so invested in the lives of the children they care for, and we are amazed at our sons growth and development over the time he has spent with them. We will be sad to move in the summer; our experience has been nothing short of incredible. We can only hope to find a childcare center where we move. The new director, Miss Stephanie, is highly professional and kind. Miss Kathie will especially be missed, as we have been able to foster a genuine relationship with her. It is also nice to see that staff of other classrooms know us and our child - they wave, say hello, and go out of their way to be engaging. Thank you to all of the staff at Habitots!

My son Ford loves going here! Everyone is so nice and helpful! I couldn’t be happier with the choice we made to send him here. He loves his teachers Ms. Maria and Ms. Erika, he talks about them all the time.

Miss Erika and Miss Maria are amazing women who truly love the children. Amelia has learned so much from her time with them and we can’t wait to see what their time together has in store.
