Active community members lead Tinkergarten everywhere. If you know a creative, entrepreneurial person who loves kids and the outdoors, you can encourage them to apply to become a leader in their own community. They’ll be part of a team, we’ll train, support, and give them all they need to be successful.
Life is too short not to love the work you do. Help kids get the start they deserve, and parents the support they need by bringing families together to learn in the best classroom of all—the outdoors.
Make additional income and set your own schedule. If you’ve got kids, you can bring them to work, too!
Become part of a talented and supportive team, receive comprehensive training in early childhood development, adult development, community outreach, and much more.
“I’ve got a whole new definition of what work can be. I spend my time helping kids and parents in my community, and I’m learning more about myself than I ever have. I’m outdoors more, I get exercise, get messy and laugh, and my son tags along with me—I can’t believe I get paid to do this!”
Though people typically lead because helping kids is rewarding in its own right, Tinkergarten® Leaders also earn financial rewards. Leaders earn a stipend for every class they teach plus bonuses for each new enrollee.

“As parents, we all want our kids to be creative, capable, well-balanced and ready to lead. Tinkergarten leaders are the people who choose this work and make that magic happen every day. We are proud, grateful and continually awe-inspired by our leaders—they are the reason why kids everywhere ask “Is it Tinkergarten today?”
