About Tinkergarten

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 am a mom of two and early childhood educator who is eager to share the outdoors with other children and caregivers. I had the opportunity to attend a nature play group when my oldest child was just 2 years old. We both got so much out of it--it re-ignited a love for the outdoors for me and opened up a whole new world for my son. I have taught prek-2nd grades, supported new teachers, and deepened early childhood teachers' understanding of mathematics. I am currently working at a Waldorf school and coaching early math and I continue to learn so much about how children learn and grow. Tinkergarten is a new adventure for me and I look forward to meeting new families who have a desire to be outdoors and tinker!
