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!
All of my favorite memories from growing up are of being outside. Whether it was playing on the beach for hours, building stick forts in the woods, or catching fireflies at sunset, they were such important moments that helped shape me as an adult. As a professional, I was involved in the arts, working primarily in art galleries and utilizing my Studio Art/Art History degree. In my non working hours, I spent nearly all that time outdoors, riding my bike around San Francisco, walking the dog, or backpacking in the Sierra Nevada. The joyful discoveries that I made as a child carried well into my adult life, and I continued to be awed by and marvel at the amazing things Mother Nature has to offer. After I became a mom, I was able to experience these joyful discoveries all over again through the eyes of my children. In doing so, I also realized how much I loved teaching and sharing nature with them and what a wonderful way it is to spend time together. I am so excited to bring Tinkergarten to the Sunnyvale / Santa Clara communities and look forward to sharing and playing in nature with you and your children!
