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!
I may be a special education teacher by day and a mother and wife by night, but I am a nature lover ALL of the time. I grew up in the country in central Illinois where I spent most of my childhood climbing trees, riding bikes, and generally just exploring the outside world around me. I am so excited to raise my son in that same way and am ready to bring that sense of wonder, peace and awe for the outside world to my community through Tinkergarten. I love that Tinkergarten defines nature as a place where there is access to sky, Earth and other species. This means that I can find nature in my backyard. I hope to be an inspiration to other parents to raise there kids outside and enjoying nature.
