Meet our Leader: Shelley Smith

I am so excited to be starting my 11th Tinkergarten season this Fall... virtually! I am a mother of 2 wonderful kids! Sadie, who's 6, and Scott, who's 4. We love swimming and playing outdoors together. After teaching for 18 years, my newest classroom will be 100% outdoors. Follow my newest adventures on instagram @littlelearnersoutdoors

5 / 5

Just great flow, pacing, energy, balance, seeing other kids, seeing Jenna, the songs, the visuals, etc. Technology and resources and planning all are working smoothly to give a great experience.

Carin M.

5 / 5

Leader was warm and knowledgeable. Love that the weekly Zoom class is just one aspect of the broader curriculum. Also appreciated that she gave guidance that it was okay to play in whatever way the child chooses, no need to make them stay on topic or keep their body still - that's super stressful as a parent!
