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 believe a child's job is to PLAY! I studied Child Development during my graduate studies at Iowa State University, and am truly passionate about guiding children's learning through play. I have vast experience working with young children and their caregivers. I love to watch kiddos "make connections" and explore their environment. Their innate curiosity sets the stage perfectly for learning about new concepts and ideas. As a stay-at-home mom to a curious and adventurous toddler, I am reminded of how the most simple objects often create the best environment for learning. I'm also reminded that most children LOVE the outdoors- and they don't mind the weather that adults might stay indoors to avoid. :) I am so excited to bring Tinkergarten to Clive. So, lets get outside to explore nature, get messy, make new friends, and learn together! I hope you'll join us!
