Re: “The Science of Play

I'm sure it was an oversight that your reporter failed to mention Habitot Children's Museum (Berkeley), the East Bay's 10-year-old discovery museum that recently won "Best Museum for Little Kids in the Bay Area (2008)" by Nickelodeon's ParentsConnect.com. Dr. Toy (Stevanne Auerbach) has also served on Habitot's Advisory Board for years. Over 750,000 people have visited Habitot, which celebrates unstructured play for children with hands-on exhibits, lots of loose parts and art materials in an interactive space. A core part of the museum's mission is to engage parents and other other adults in playfulness with their children. In fact, Habitot co-sponsored the January 2008 "Play Around the Bay" Symposium which attracted almost 100 play leaders, recreation planners, museum people, educators and others who are working to address this issue. Incidentally, Habitot has been seeking a larger and more accessible facility, with parking and outdoor space, for several years, and is eager to work with any community group in any East Bay city eager to make this happen.
