    400 Abrams Park Rd, Ridgefield, WA 98642, USA

    Tinkergarten provides early childhood learning in the outdoors. The curriculum engages a wide range of kids ages 18 months to 8 years. A season of Tinkergarten lessons are engineered to help kids develop a range of school readiness and lifelong-learning skills. Registration is available on-line for classes at Abrams Park on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning September 10.

    Families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In a 5-part class each week, Tinkergarten Leader, Tiffany Burnette, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we’ll share insight into your child’s development.

    The program progresses to meet each child’s needs season after season. This fall, the curriculum will support the development of a range of cognitive, social/emotional and physical skills. Our focus skill for the season will be problem solving.

    Tinkergarten registration here.
