We are a Reggio Emilia-inspired learning community that values the richness and joy of working with children in a creative environment, in close contact with nature.

Hábitat Learning Community opened its doors in August 2017 for nursery, kindergarten, and elementary school students. Our starting date for middle school will be August 2027.

Our service learning program actively involves students in a wide range of experiences that benefit others and the community both within and outside our campus, while also advancing the goals of the curriculum.

Our English immersion program offers children the opportunity to learn and develop complete fluency in a second language. Students develop their language abilities by strengthening their mother tongue while learning English.

We know that the educational experience provided at Hábitat Learning Community requires that the children be surrounded by adults that can guide them in the development of their cognitive, emotional, and social skills.

Our teachers are highly qualified and careful, and skilled listeners who respect the interests, curiosity, and learning pace of each child. Moreover, they have in-depth knowledge of socio-constructivist theories of development and conduct their research based on their practice as educators.

We have formed an international group of educators that are passionate about education and take pleasure in learning together with their students. Our teachers are life-long learners and are engaged in a process of constant professional and personal growth through our rigorous continuous training program.
