ABOUT THE HABITOT AND THE AWARDS:
For nineteen years, Habitot Children's Museum, a nonprofit organization based in Berkeley CA, has served over 1,080,000 families with family programs, immersive play-based exhibits, outreach and parenting education. Habitot believes that all children should have the opportunity to live with joy and learn though play, regardless of their income, life history, or physical ability. Habitot offers rotating exhibits, such as a Medical and Veterinary exhibit for roleplaying in the doctor's office, a child-sized kitchen cafe and grocery story, a water play zone, wind tunnel, infant toddler garden, and an art studio with unlimited art supplies and a personal art teacher to demonstrate techniques and offer guidance for families, caregivers, and tots. Habitot offers special programs, at no cost, to families with children experiencing special needs, children experiencing homelessness, children in the foster care, children with formerly incarcerated parents, children with teen parents, LGBTQ families, children speaking English as a Second Language and more.

The Bay Area Preschool Teacher Awards (Preschool Teachers Make A Difference Awards) hosted by Habitot Children's Museum seeks to acknowledge the important work of preschool teachers in raising up young children with learning through play. It takes a village to raise a child and Habitot believe preschool teachers are a very important part of a young child's community. Thank you for sharing this vision.
