Skill-Based Curriculum

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 technology-enabled, expert designed curriculum adapts to region and season, is age appropriate, and spans a broad range of skills. Activities progressively build week after week, season after season.
“The classes are so well-thought-out and organized without being rigid.”

Outside is healthier

Tinkergarten parents are not anti-tech. Our kids get ample screen time, too. Isn’t our greatest gift, then, to balance that time with healthy, rejuvenating, and developmentally stimulating time outdoors?
“She’ll get plenty of time with the iPad soon. At her age, being outside just seems right.”

Let them Play, like we did

Our classes bring back something that seems to be lost on this new generation — something that was a most influential part of our own childhoods — free time to tinker outdoors.
“My youngest was more independent in this class than any other we’ve taken.”

Prepare them

Kids learn leadership, problem solving, persistence, and more through well-designed, guided play. At Tinkergarten, we think independent exploration, risk taking, getting dirty, and making help kids achieve far greater things than drills at the local tutoring center.
“I've learned to see his play as learning. Amazing!”

It takes a Village

The most critical social development happens in the first 5 years. Tinkergarten is purposefully designed to bring kids together with their peers, their parents, and allow mom and dad to bond with their child more meaningfully.
“He lost himself at Tinkergarten, and before he knew it, he was working with the other kids.”
– Elif, Mom to a 3-year-old
