Tinkergarten provides high-quality early childhood learning in the healthiest classroom of all—the outdoors. Families connect with trained leaders in their local community for play-based kids classes that help develop core life skills, all while having fun!
While I've lead Tinkergarten since Summer 2016, I have done so in Southern California and I am so excited to bring it with me to WA Fall 2017. I can't wait to explore all the wonderful outdoor activities WA has to offer and to share Tinkergarten with you! Previously, I lived in California for 15 years and have spent 10 as a Visual Merchandiser for a snowboarding company. Prior to that my childhood was split between the wilds of Northern Arizona and Tokyo, Japan. In both places, I was lucky enough to be able to play freely in the outdoors. I have such vivid memories of the adventures I would go on with my friends, that I still find myself sizing up trees for their climb-ability or looking for sticks and logs to build forts or race down a stream. I'm still so excited to be a part of Tinkergarten and to get your little ones outside to have their own adventures experiencing the best schoolroom and playground all wrapped up into one!
