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 can't imagine a more wonderful thing than a child discovering their world. And as the parent of a city kid, how better to do that than outside?! In today's parenting world, it can be hard to feel connected to nature and to remember just how valuable messy, creative outdoor exploration can truly be…which is where Tinkergarten comes in! For kids, life is full of everyday learning and allowing kids to learn through play with the supportive involvement of parents and caregivers can be magical. I have a background in theatre, a more recent background as a nurse, and am a parent myself. I am so excited to bring my years of experience working with kids and my love of child-led learning to Tinkergarten and my community!
