Please email with any questions.


I joyfully offer outdoor nature play classes following the Tinkergarten curriculum to young kids and their grownups in the Providence, RI area. We meet for 60 minute classes, where I guide families through songs, movement, exploration and purposeful play. This Spring our curriculum will focus on "Creativity" -- the ability to imagine original ideas or solutions to problems and make them happen. Follow the links to register or contact me to learn more. I'd love to learn with you! 

 How We Learn

Tinkergarten's curriculum is designed to help kids become healthy, curious, capable learners by exploring the outside world. 

Outdoors is our classroom

We have no walls. Creatures are our teachers, mud and sticks are our tools. Every lesson connects us to nature. 

Open-ended, child-led

Kids learn best when they lead the way. We also help grownups support their child. 

Irresistable invitations to play

Each lesson is engineered to engage kids in play that they simply can’t refuse!
