Why our homeschooling families love Tinkergarten:

Over the past decade, we've honed our unique approach to help kids become healthy, curious, creative and caring learners.
Our unique approach
  • Nature

    +

    Our classroom is nature, and the choice to school at home so often aligns with a desire for the best possible classroom.

    In a world of uncertainty, I have been blessed to be reminded each week of the amazing power of wonder. To see children experience the natural world around them with such joy gives me hope. The hours that I spend outside as a Tinkergarten teacher are some of the best, week after week.

  • Open-Ended Learning

    +

    All of our activities are play-based, child-led and multi-age, matching nicely with the individual learning design a homeschooled child receives.

    Each class I observed how engaged the kids were in the explorations and could tell that they were so immersed that they could've continued happily for much longer.

  • Eight Essential Skills

    +

    The program helps kids develop a strong foundation in 8 essential skills they’ll need to become capable, confident and creative learners.

    I learned to be more patient and child-led in my interactions. I have changed my perspective around how to initiate an idea and let the kids run with it.

  • Social

    +

    Our live programming, both in person and online, is interactive and designed to build strong class communities.

    We learned another way to play with them, to approach nature, and to ask them things like 'What do you think? What do you see?'

  • At-Home Curriculum

    Homeschooling parents use our at-home activities and resources for grown-ups to keep purposeful play going all week long.

    In a world of uncertainty, I have been blessed to be reminded each week of the amazing power of wonder. To see children experience the natural world around them with such joy gives me hope. The hours that I spend outside as a Tinkergarten teacher are some of the best, week after week.
