What are Tinkergarten classes like?

Tinkergarten classes combine a live session facilitated by a certified (and amazing) Tinkergarten Leader with an at home curriculum that parents and caregivers can use to keep kids playing and learning outdoors all week long. Both live sessions and at home curriculum are designed to engage children in play-based activities that foster a sense of joy and wonder, all while developing essential skills.

Each live session follows a structure that includes community building, songs, movement, learning about nature, guided play time, and a closing community share time. We also have tools families can use to upload photos of the play that continues at home between live class sessions so Leaders and the whole class community can celebrate your child and family's play!

Every Tinkergarten lesson is designed to inspire open-ended exploration and play through which kids actively engage in imagining, exploring, and/or problem solving.

While each lesson is designed by Tinkergarten and guided by a trained Leader, the children decide how to play in response to the lesson's play scenario, and the children's interests play the leading role in shaping the way play unfolds. 

To kids, it's pure and joyful fun.
