About Our Name: Christy Fajkowski first conceived the idea of habitOts in 1982, when she began working with a community of parents and their preschool children seeking an alternative to large-group preschool programs. These families participated in a contest, submitting proposed names for the new school, and after a series of votes, the name habitOts was a sure winner! It embodies what Christy, as an educator,envisioned for her new school: an environment for children, by children, and about children - in essence, an early childhood habitat in which mind, body and spirit could explore, discover, and create in a familiar, nurturing environment. The name was formally integrated into the logo by graphic artist, Peggy Bruno of Marshfield Massachusetts in 1985, and is the sole property of Christy Fajkowski.
Disclaimer: habitOts and the trademark/servicemark is the sole property of Christy Fajkowski. It is the name of her Watertown MA child care program (1982 - 1990) and the name of her Billerica preschool program (1990 - present.)
