The Importance of

Problem Solving

There’s no skill more essential to our children’s future success than problem solving—no matter how you define success. It’s so important that the World Economic Forum identified complex problem solving as the #1 skill people will need to thrive in the future. That’s why problem-solving is one of the 8 core skills we help kids develop in the Tinkergarten program.

Early in life, children’s minds are flexible and hungry to make sense of the world, creating a drive to explore, uncover problems and test hypotheses. The kinds of experiences we offer our children and the way in which we support them help them turn their infinite capacity for wonder into strong, flexible problem solving skills. Our Problem Solving series is designed to strengthen a new problem-solving mindset each week—all through joyful outdoor play.

We'll help kids build strong roots in empathy, our human superpower. Kids learn to recognize emotions in themselves and others, explore taking another's perspective and discover fun, new ways to care for each other and the planet.


Wellness is the combination of physical and emotional health that kids need to thrive. Kids will move their bodies, cultivate calm and connect with nature—all tools to be and stay well.


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.
