Community and Interfaith News At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In the classes, Tinkergarten Leader, Heather Katz, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Our goal is to make learning irresistible by inspiring wonder, leveraging brain science, and even sprinkling in some best practices. Come play outside with us! For more information, please visit www.tinkergarten.com/leaders/heather.katz to find class times & to register. All classes held at the North Street Playground. Interested in trying a class for free?
