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 grew up in Virginia surrounded by rivers, lakes, bays, and the ocean. I attribute my love for nature to my "hippie" mom. She raised me with a deep respect for nature and all living things. We always shared an awe for the endless beauty in nature, from the grandeur of sunsets to the wonderful softness of lush moss. It is that propensity to simply notice beauty, large and small, that I want to pass on to children as a Tinkergarten Leader. I hugely value giving kids the space to freely connect with nature. I've been here in rural CT for 12 years now and I get outside every chance I can, no matter the weather. I prioritize passing these values onto our twin daughters and I'm thrilled at the chance to share the journey with other children and parents through Tinkergarten.
