Parent & Caregiver Resources


A core part of Habitot’s mission as a non-profit organization is to support parents and caregivers—from as broad an audience as possible—as they raise creative, curious, and confident children. A goal this large, one that attempts to reach further with each new step, requires listening to our community, amplifying voices, and forming partnerships.

This page contains links to books we love and Habitot puppet shows, both of which promote early literacy.

You’ll also find Early Childhood Safety advice and instruction from local Bay Area Agencies.

Coming soon are links to videos about supporting your child as they learn through play, parenting articles, and workshops.
