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 have always loved teaching children, and have been a preschool teacher for over 7 years. Once our daughter came along and transitioned from adorable baby to toddler-in-action, we rediscovered just how important a connection to nature is for both us and for her. We spend as much of our time adventuring outside as we can, discovering new creeks, parks, hikes, and hidden spaces to crawl in. One of our family rules is "Never Stop Adventuring." Joining Tinkergarten is one of our newest adventures, and an amazing way to help bring other families closer to nature, mud pies and potions, forest exploration, and the magical wonder of being outside. I'm so excited to have you join us!
