WEST ORANGE, NJ - On Wednesday, Sept. 13, Tinkergarten leader Arielle Messuti is offering a free trial class for parents and children ages 18 months to eight years old. The class will be held at Tulip Springs, South Mountain Reservation in West Orange from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. During this trial class, Messuti 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 as well, as they will share insight into each child's development. 

Tinkergarten’s skill-based curriculum is designed to help kids become well-balanced people who can problem-solve, lead and create. It is intended to be engaging, memorable, play-based learning that takes place all outdoors.

“Children will be smarter, better able to get along with others, healthier and happier when they have regular opportunities for free and unstructured play in the out-of-doors,” concluded an authoritative study published by the American Medical Association.
