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 love being outside, being silly, exploring, and learning as a way of life. I have been an credentialed educator for 10 years. I am elated to find this wonderful program that incorporates so many of the concepts I learned in my Master's training in ECE, and know to be best practices for teaching and engaged, excited, learning minds. I am the mama to an energetic 1 year old who already loves exploring. He is my inspiration to dig in and make play-based learning a focus of my teaching as I've longed to do. I want him to grow up to be a life-long learner. I'm excited to be able to support his curiosity through Tinkergarten, and spread that excitement to other families in Pinole!
