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!
As busy mom of three wild and fun boys, I am always looking for ways to channel their ample energy into constructive activities. Over the years, I have found that nothing gives them as much opportunity for exploration and as much gratification as being outdoors. I am a native New Yorker, and though much of my life was spent in artificial environments full of stimulation, my fondest personal childhood memories were outside. My mother was raised in the open prairie of Alberta and she shared her great reverence and wonder for the natural world with me every chance she got. Colorado has been my home for the last 20+ years, probably because of my great love of the outdoors. My goal as a Tinkergarten Leader is to share this love with my community and to help families understand how important it is to unplug, get outside and have fun! I hold both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Music and will draw on my experience as a singer, actress and improvisational player to engage children and parents in creative, playful learning.
