I am the mommy of two little ones who love to play and explore outside. As a bicultural family, we embrace a European ideal of learning in nature. As a former early childhood educator, I appreciate the power of learning through play. Tinkergarten combines and embodies these elements! I am thrilled to offer these amazing classes that encourage our little ones to adventure in, socialize amidst and develop a love of the outdoors. Do you remember countless hours of creatively playing outside as a child? Tinkergarten can help you build those fantastic memories for your kids, too!
