Cultivating capable, curious, creative children through connections with nature

Welcome! I joyfully offer educational outdoor play classes that follow the Tinkergarten curriculum to young kids (1.5-8yrs old) and their grownups at beautiful Colt State Park in Bristol, RI. In each 60min class explorers learn from creatures, sing songs, and are invited to wonder, play, create, and explore through purposeful researched-based activities. This summer, we’ll be following the SENSORY curriculum designed to help each child strengthen and balance their senses! Our senses are central to how we experience the world, how we behave, and how we learn. I can't wait to connect with you and your healthy, curious, capable learners. Come learn, play, and have fun with us!

Christine encourages kids to move, create and explore at their own pace within the group setting. And the resources she provides help us incorporate her lessons into our play and conversations throughout the week. We are truly thankful to Christine for inspiring families like ours to spend time playing and learning outside!” - Parent Guide, Spring 2023
