  • Taking risks
  • Embracing change
  • Creating a sense of belonging

Sensory

Everything our kids learn is filtered through their senses, and each child has a unique sensory system. Our curriculum is designed to help each child strengthen and balance their senses in the great outdoors.
In this series, kids will explore:
  • Gathering information through our senses
  • Asking essential questions
  • Focusing attention
  • Fostering each sensory input

Playful problem solving now can help kids adjust to a changing environment, navigate key relationships, and contribute to their family, local and broader communities.
In this series, kids will explore:
  • Slowing down and observing

  • Teaming up when struggles becomes frustrations
  • Enjoying the process of problem solving

Love Tinkergarten

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?" Not so much telling them what they see and what they think.

Unknown 5

I’m giving my kids a group that they get to call their own. We can’t afford preschool so this is their group of peers. I value them being able to learn from the leader alongside their Tinkergarten classmates.

Unknown 6

Tinkergarten has taught me so much more about the creativity I’ve lost as I’ve gotten older. I remember when I used to play in the mud and how much fun it was when I was a kid.

Melissa

I think the class style fits every personality. There is guidance but it does not feel pressured, children are able to do the activities but also explore on their own. This was great for my daughter because she is shy and also very independent.

Andreina

We have enjoyed every minute. Each class I observed how engaged the girls were in the explorations and could tell that they were so immersed that they could've continued happily for much longer. I thank you for creating such a warm positive space for outdoor learning. It was a blast!

Anna

Absolutely LOVE Tinkergarden! I always thought I was doing enough "outdoor" activities with my daughter (2.5yo) but going to class has opened her (and myself) up to so much more! She's shown more respect for our earth too in such a short amount of time.

Unknown 1

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.

Unknown 4

I would have never thought to set him up with all these activities. I’m so grateful for Tinkergarten. It keeps him busy for the whole day. I leave everything out to play at his leisure.

Paige

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.

Unknown 2

It gives me and my child scheduled time to get away from everything except a pleasant learning, playful experience outdoors. I can see that it's what grounds my child each week, allowing her to process things much better and with a more patient attitude.

FAQs

Can siblings join in the fun?
Yes! Tinkergarten Anywhere is designed for families with children aged 2-8. There is no limit to the number of siblings who can participate–it's still just $49 per family (per season).

How long does a Tinkergarten Anywhere lesson last?
Each lesson of Tinkergarten Anywhere is designed to facilitate play & learning for an entire week. Each lesson begins with a 7 to 10 minute video that includes songs, rituals and an “invitation” designed to inspire kids to get outside and play for hours. After the initial lesson, continue scrolling down your Lesson page for more activities and resources to keep the play going all week long!

What do I need to bring to each lesson?
After you enroll, we will mail you a welcome packet with a season map kids can use to track their progress & a badge that commemorates completion of the season and progress on the focus skill. Each of the nine lessons will contain instructions for which everyday items you will need to kick off learning. Examples of those items are things like dirt, water, bowls, or string.

What if I want extra badges for additional siblings?
Each welcome packet contains 1 badge. If you would like additional badges for additional Explorers, they can be purchased from the Tinkergarten Gear Store.
