Our schoolhouse-hold runs on the belief that children are drawn to experience, to learning, and to each other. We see it as our responsibility to create an environment where each child can reach out for life and touch it, wallow in it, tinker with it, interpret it, and express it.
From providing materials that inspire curiosity, wonder, manipulation, motion, contemplation, and gales of laughter to keeping the house full of adults who are highly intelligent and deeply affectionate, our intentions are clear to us and, we hope, to you as well.
This is a house of love and acceptance, not of law and order. The road of self-discovery takes many paths, – in our case over ninety of them- and to allow those differences and keep a house of children and adults is both an exhausting and exhilarating experience – one that we vow will continue here in perpetuity.

If you’d like to come visit, meet our director, Andrew, and get on the wait list, please book an appointment with us using the form below. You are more than welcome to bring along your kiddo so they can get in on the tour and experience Habibi’s for themselves.
**Appointments must be made 48 hours in advance and MAY NOT be booked over the phone. Drop-ins are for current families only (and families already on the wait list), as we need to staff appropriately in order to give you the information and tour you deserve! 🙂
You’ll meet us at the playground entrance (past the two houses, where the sidewalk ends). Ask any of our friendly teachers to direct you to Andrew, so your tour may begin.
Keep in mind that we do have a long waitlist (about 2 – 2 1/2 years), so the earlier the better! Most spots open up at the end of the summer/beginning of the Fall semester. We give priority to current students’ siblings and teacher’s children, then according to the date you signed up for the wait list and your child’s age (sometimes, a spot opens up for the 4 year old age group when your child is still only 2, so we go to the next 4 year old on our list).
Bring an open mind and open heart along with any questions you have for Andrew!
See you soon!
