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!
My favorite role is being a mom to two boys who were born explorers! When I am not learning and playing with my sons, I provide academic and behavioral consultation services to families and schools. I stumbled upon Tinkergarten after having my oldest was born and I was completely hooked once I started reading about the emphasis that was placed on facilitating play, socializing, and learning in the outdoors. Tinkergarten has allowed me to balance my love for the highly structured education I provide in homes and schools, with the amazing education that can be acquired through the freedom and flexibility of outdoor play. Looking forward to sharing time outdoors with you and your family soon!
