FREE Supervised childcare is available for 2-5 year olds in Habitot's main museum. Pizza dinner is provided.

Spanish speaking caregivers are invited to meet and share experiences about the fun and challenges of caring for the children of others one morning a month in Habitot's classroom annex. (Caregiver Cafes do not take place during the summer months).

During each session, facilitated in Spanish, children will be occupied with art and craft activities nearby led by Habitot staff. Coffee and pastries are provided. The suggested donation is $10 per adult, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Attendees and their children receive FREE admission to Habitot following the Cafe where you can put new ideas into action. To receive email updates about Caregiver Cafés, please contact us at 510-647-1111 ×16 or
