About

The world we live in is busy, chaotic and at times stressful. As parents we are doing our best to bring up stable little kids who thrive in life and have all the opportunities to be their best. To grow into empathetic human beings. To excel. But this is hard and with the daily stresses of work & life, we sometimes forget how to slow it all down.

We’re here to help. We love to play. We love to laugh & to learn. We love to get messy and make stuff. We don’t think you have to be particularly good at it, you just have to try. And this is what our kids want. Time with us. Playing. Being. Living.

We’ve developed a gorgeous kids art program that we run in locations around the world where parents & kids can reconnect. Get messy and make stuff together. Build on the principles of play-based learning, we help kids gain confidence through play, grow their self-esteem and their creative imagination.

Outside our regularly scheduled classes (that we run in South Melbourne until the end of June 2017), we partner with companies and organisations who want us to deliver this same learning experience at their events or locations.

About our founder, Suzanne

After 11 years working in advertising and most recently running an agency in Melbourne, I left adland to follow my dream and the vision of Habitots I’d had in my head for over 7 years.

I’m a mum to 3 small boys and I have the most supportive, funny and encouraging husband ever. I could have never done this without his help. He calls me his rock but he’s definitely mine. I guess we make a good team.

In 2017, we’ve decided to embark on a dream as a family, and are moving to France for 1-2 years! In a way, we are ready to live and breath the philosophy of Habitots and to really play with our kids, slow down and savour the time with our family, while our kids are young. As the primary writer of the Habitots blog, I will enjoy writing more, and will also continue to market and promote Habitots from France as we have business that will continue in my absence (and under the guise of my awesome team in Melbourne). My eyes and ears will be open to creative opportunities and I always love to collaborate with businesses & brands, so just give me a shout if you’re keen to work together.

My email is suzanne@habitots.com.au. Follow along on our blog here.

A bientot,
