Tinkergarten classes are available to children from 18 months to 8 years of age. Some classes focus on a specific age range (such as 18-36 months, 3-5 years, etc). Others are available to children anywhere between 18 months and 8 years. By working with a smaller age range, classes can be more finely tailored to the developmental level of the children who participate, while allowing a larger age range lets whole families participate together. The larger age range provides a chance for younger kids to benefit from the modeling and support of older kids, and for older kids to be leaders for their younger classmates. In general, age ranges are meant to be used as guidelines, and many activities can be adapted for younger or older children. However, if your child is outside of the recommended age range for a particular class, it's a good idea to reach out to the leader of that class before enrolling to ensure that your child has the skills he or she will need to participate in and enjoy the planned activities.
