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 kid’s most critical social and emotional development happens in their first 6 to 8 years. Our outdoor activities continue to encourage creative exploration, as well as critical thought about challenging problems and puzzles. We’re encouraging kids to start to understand the science of nature, to continue building upon their social skills and good sportsmanship, and to play well with others.
