Tinkergarten Free Trial @ Lincoln Park
Jan 14 @ 10:00 am – 10:50 am

At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Alison Arnote, 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 share insight into your child’s development.

This trial class is:

  • Designed for children ages 18 months-8 years. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
  • Limited to the first 15 families who register.

Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.

We start the class at the specified location but may end within a reasonable walk from that location.

This trial class is free.
