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!
Many of my earlier childhood days were spent outside all day playing barefoot in the dirt until the street lights came on. As a teenager I spent much of my time volunteering at and getting to know one of my favorite local parks. Now as a mother, I am trying to pass on my love for nature to my son. I couldn't be happier to have been introduced to Tinkergarten by a close friend (after many a play date in which I set up nature activities to entertain our kiddos). I look forward to leading families in my community to get outside, get dirty, and be amazed by how much you can get from a little play time.
