About Habitots Preschool in Middle Island

Appointed with state-of-the-art security equipment and meticulously maintained, Habitots is beautiful, safe, and efficient. Throughout the halls and classrooms, you will find caring, hard-working, knowledgeable, and simply incredible, certified staff, all of whom love what they do.

These are some of the wonderful things our families have said about our school:

  • “It feels like family. I’m also comfortable bringing my daughter there knowing she will be in good hands.”
  • “The friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the school.”
  • “I feel confident in the overall care and learning my son is receiving. His teachers are attentive, caring, and intentional with my son.”

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.

We joined Habitot this summer after a very upsetting year with another childcare in the area. Our son started in the infant room for a couple of weeks because of his age at the time, and moved up to the toddler room and has been flourishing ever since. His language has skyrocketed. He is always impressing us with the things he has learned that we didn’t know he knew (today he was counting.) The love his teachers have for his is apparent. We are communicated with for every thing that happens, a new bruise, a runny nose, what he ate, and so on. It is absolutely refreshing to be a part of the Habitot family. We are greeted with a smile each morning, and his days are full of songs, crafts, and good craziness! Our son is sociable, saying thank you, cleaning up, using sign language, but most importantly, he is happy. The environment is warm and friendly, and it is clean. Spotless, if I’m being honest. Toys are put away, tables are wiped down, his bag is always ready for pick-up, you can smell how clean the rooms are. His teachers are honest about what goes on with him, they’ve expressed concern where other locations have looked past things. We genuinely could not be happier with our decision. We know he is safe, happy, fed, growing, and learning. We could not ask for more.

Our daughter has been attending habitots for quite some time now in the infant room and we are extremely happy with the way our daughter is taken care of. We can see how much the staff loves each and every child and pays attention to every detail to make sure every child gets the care they need. I cant thank Ms.Alexa, Ms.Emily, Ms.Camilla, Ms.Kayla and Ms.Sophia enough for what they do everyday. It is very heartwarming seeing the way my daughters face lights up when she sees each and every one of them and loves going to school. She has learned so much in the time she’s attended habitots and we see a significant improvement in her developmental skills. Also thank you to Ms.Casondra for always greeting everyone with a smile and being there for all the parents and children. We recommend everyone to habitots and will continue to attend in the future as well.

Our daughter has been attending the infant program at Habitots for about 6 months and we are overjoyed at how much she loves going to daycare. Her teachers Miss Emily and Miss Alexa, and now Miss Kayla are beyond sweet to our girl. Our daughter has learned a few basic signs in sign language and a few words and skills like cruising and eating with utensils from being at daycare. When we drop her off she reaches for her teachers and loves to be with them. The teachers are patient and we can tell that they truly care for our daughter. We highly recommend Habitots to any of our friends or family that are looking for a new daycare. We trust the teachers and staff to keep our daughter safe and we know that they are enriching her education with their attention to detail and skills. Thank you Miss Casondra, Miss Emily, Miss Alexa, Miss Kayla, and everyone else at Habitots that make our girls day special every single day she is there.

My son attended Habitots from 8/2020-8/2023. He has loved his time there and his teachers have had lasting impacts (he still talks about Ms Angie who moved out of state over a year ago). We were always greeted with a smile by Ms Casondra each morning and felt very comfortable leaving him in their care. The facility is kept very clean and their communication with parents is great. He adored his preschool teachers this year, Ms Erica and Ms Renee, who came up with creative lessons for their classes. We are sad to say goodbye as he starts PreK with our district next week.
