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'm a holistic mental health counselor and a city girl. Because I grew up in urban environments and always felt a little out of place in nature, I had no idea where to start when the time came to introduce my daughter to the outdoors. Intuitively, I knew it was healthy, and fun, but I had no clue what to even do outside. Tinkergarten gave me an invaluable skill set that I'm more than happy to pass along, both to my daughter who is now an avid self-learner and discoverer of the wonders of nature, but to other children and parents who also want to develop a relationship with the natural world.
