* Families are welcome to drop in any time during the 60 minute trial class window, and stay as long as they like. * Tinkergarten Babies classes are designed for children ages 6 to 18 months. * We welcome older children to join us for our 18 month+ programs so we can offer a developmentally supportive space for babies and toddlers to start their life of learning in nature. • Families with siblings of various ages are most welcome to bring Babies to our 18 month+ class, and Leaders are trained to support wee ones in that mixed age context.
For families with young kids, spending purposeful time outside is more important than ever. To thrive in this dynamic world, children need outdoor play experiences that deliver the hands-on lessons, valuable social interactions, and restorative activity that can’t be gained from the tap of a screen. As parents, it’s our job to ensure they engage in these experiences early and often. But how?
While finding ways to create enriching outdoor moments is essential, it isn’t always easy. Getting outside might be a simple first step, but for a lot of us, knowing what to do next—and how to make it count— just doesn’t come naturally.
We’ve been there. That’s why we started Tinkergarten.
Tinkergarten helps families get outside to make the most of their kids’ early learning years. Designed by education experts and loved by busy families throughout the United States, our play-based outdoor curriculum guides parents in raising healthy, confident, and capable kids. Tinkergarten makes purposeful outdoor play doable for every family—rain or shine.
