I have never seen our city more beautiful than through the eyes of my children. The magical mangroves, the fern forests, the crystal clear tide pools teeming with life. As a child, growing up in suburban South Florida, I spent most of my days in a classroom. We learned about our environment through textbooks. Our contact with nature went as far as the backyard, the local playground, and trips to the beach. It was only after having my own children and discovering a community of like-minded parents, that I began to seek and discover what hidden nature gems we actually have in Miami! As a therapist for children with special needs, former classroom teacher, editor-in-chief of The Home Educator Magazine, and homeschooling mom of 3; I have seen, first-hand, the power of outdoor play and letting children follow their own interests! It is with great excitement that I am introducing Tinkergarten to South Florida! Come out and play!
