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!
Having taught in the elementary school system for years, I have first hand knowledge of the importance of multi-sensory experiences in child development. With our busy schedules and advanced technologies, our kids are getting less and less time to play and are losing essential brain building experiences. Children learn best through real life experiences; with people, dirt, puddles, creatures, snow, you name it! Too often they've been told to look but don't touch. For our kids to develop fully and be connected to nature, they must have first hand, multisensory encounters with it. It's picking up leaves and worms, turning over rocks, collecting flowers, splashing in puddles and playing in the mud. Come to a Tinkergarten class and experience the joy and wonder children have when playing outdoors with us. It can be messy, dirty work, but it's always lots of fun! Come and get messy with us!
