At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Melissa Clough, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we’ll share insight into your child’s development.
This trial class is:
- Designed for children ages 18-36 months. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
- Limited to the first 15 families who register.
- Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.
- We start the class at the specified location, but may end within a reasonable walk from that location.
I was pleased to see that my son continued his nature-inspired play...He's usually focused on playing sports, which is fine, but I was pleased to see that today his play was quite exploratory too.

My son has a tendency to be shy in new settings but he comes out of his shell at Tinkergarten. Makes me proud.

I learned how and when to step back and let my son be himself in certain situations. That was a lesson that I needed so much as a parent. The leader was able to communicate this in such a gentle and generalized way that I was able to step back and see myself. Not only was that a useful lesson, it was life changing.
