About Tinkergarten

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'm a homeschooling mother to my four children ages 5, 7, 8, and 11. I love teaching and playing with my kids, especially outdoors. I am so excited to have them involved in Tinkergarten as well as offer it to other families in our area that love playing outside, letting imaginations and friendships grow.
