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've always found myself drawn to nature and dedicated my adult life to teaching people about conservation. I grew up in Wisconsin, where exploring the woods was part of our summer routine. In my life before kids, I worked for 10 years as a Zookeeper. I've trained and cared for many different species. I've also educated the public about those species and about the importance of conserving them and their habitats. As a mom, I've made it my goal to share these interests with my children. Tinkergarten is such a wonderful way to introduce children to nature and to inspire an appreciation for it.
