Meet our Leader: Heather Katz

I am a Mom of 3 fun, active children, and have had the privilege of staying home with them for the past 17 years. We are a family that truly loves the outdoors, and learning together outside has very naturally been a part of our lives. I have been leading Tinkergarten classes for 3 years, which has been a true joy! Last year, I also started a new career as a health coach, personal trainer & yoga instructor, as I used to teach elementary school. When I first found Tinkergarten, I felt an instant connection to Tinkergarten's philosophy and emphasis on play-based learning in an outdoor classroom, which has always been my favorite place to be, and to teach. I am excited to lead Tinkergarten in our community, and for the opportunity to be a Mom, now working in health and fitness, and a lover of nature who has always dreamed of teaching in an outdoor classroom year round. To be able to combine two of the things I am most passionate - teaching children and being outdoors - is truly a dream come true! Looking forward to learning together with you & your children soon!

5 / 5

It’s such a beautiful and fun curriculum, and my kids play a lot with ideas that stem from their weekly class! I also love the inclusive and diverse approach. It’s golden!

I liked how this was suitable for all ages. My oldest son loved the science of it all: "why is that happening?" "What will happen when?" And my younger son loved mixing and making a mess!
