What is Tinkergarten?

Designed by experts, loved by teachers, parents and kids, Tinkergarten gets kids ages 1 1/2 to 8 learning outside. Kids who participate get the physical and mental benefits of increased time outdoors and build a lasting connection to nature. Tinkergarten lessons are designed to take place in home spaces, shared community green spaces, school settings and all of the places in between.

The Tinkergarten Learning Journey

As they progress through the program, children develop a strong foundation in 8 essential skills that kids need to become creative, caring and confident people who can thrive in a dynamic world. They can also participate in special events designed to spark joy and deepen kids’ ties to their local biome and community.

Series Overview

Senses are central to how kids experience the world, how they behave, and how they learn. While most kids crave sensory engagement, unfortunately they don’t always get it. More and more, teachers and parents are noticing that young bodies are crying out for more of what their developing sensory systems need. Good news! Nature truly is the ideal, sensory environment–calming, constantly changing, and stimulating to all of our senses, in perfect balance.

How We’ll Boost Sensory Skills

This Summer, our curriculum is desinged to help each child strengthen and balance their senses in the most stimulating and soothing classroom of all–the great outdoors. Our curriculum will help kids foster each of their senses, activate multiple senses at once and offer approaches to support each child’s unique sensory system.

Sensory Lessons

The 10 Sensory lessons focus on:

  1. The “Famous Five” senses (sight, sound, smell, taste and touch).
  2. Our hidden senses (proprioception and vestibular).
  3. Exploring our sense of joy and wonder.
