Wellness

This Fall, we focus on Wellness—that combination of physical, mental and emotional health kids need to thrive. Our curriculum will provide kids with irresistible invitations to play that ​​help kids develop language, strategies and habits that they can continue to use to build strong bodies, minds and hearts—all tools kids can use to be and stay well.

In this Tinkergarten Anywhere series:

  • 9 video lessons to learn at your child’s pace.

  • Designed for ages 2 to 8 years old.

  • Additional activities to keep learning all week long.

  • Parent tips to help you support your child.

  • Lesson map & badge to celebrate progress.

The Importance of

Wellness

Studies show that kids today spend about 50% of the time that we did outdoors. And, kids have lost 12 hours of free play time out of each week since 1970. As a nation, we gave ourselves a D- on our US Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth with more than 75% of our kids failing to get the minimum required daily physical activity.

Kids have to learn or develop the ability to regulate or center themselves through experience. We can give them opportunities and strategies to learn how to cultivate calm early on. In this series, we’ll teach kids new techniques to calm, connect and center their minds and bodies.

Celebrate with Nature

We introduce five ways to connect to nature and boost joy:

Persistence

Persistence is the ability to stick with something, pushing through challenges to reach our goals, learn and grow.

Communication

Our fun Camp Tinkergarten theme is anchored by sweet rituals and weekly lessons designed to use purposeful, outdoor play to bolster kids' communication—that symphony of skills we use to take in, make sense of and express ideas.

Empathy

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.

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.

Problem Solving

Playful problem solving now can help kids adjust to a changing environment, navigate key relationships, and contribute to their family, local and broader communities.
