Tinkergarten believes that children of all ages are able to engage with our play-based learning model. We offer outdoor activities that suit a wide range of ages, because we believe that everyone should get the chance to tinker outdoors. No child is too young or too old to do a Tinkergarten outdoor activity.

A child’s most critical social development happens in their first 5 years. Tinkergarten’s outdoor activities are purposefully designed to bring 3 year old, 4 year old, and 5 year old kids together with their peers, their parents, and allow mom and dad to bond with their children more meaningfully. We believe this age is crucial for developing their thinking and emotional skills, as well as learning how teamwork can be integral to group activities. Our play-based learning model means that our activities are both developmentally stimulating and just plain fun!
