Tinkergarten is not a typical kids’ class—we share ideas with educational frameworks like Montessori, Waldorf and Reggio Emilia, but we’re much more. Our play-based learning curriculum adapts to all the different skills that kids are developing and practicing. We’re combining the fun of play with the broad range of skills that are important for children to start developing at a young age.
Our play-based learning and hands-on approach allows kids to observe nature firsthand. They’re experiencing the science of the outdoors, by observing the changes that happen around us. Our outdoor activities bring them face-to-face with the changing seasons and changing states of nature. We also embrace the role of storytelling in learning, which encourages literacy and creative thinking.
