Sponsored Post - TINKERGARTEN: Outdoor Play Based Kid Classes Coming To Roosevelt Island This Fall - Sign Up Now For More Info

Roosevelt Island Mom and Tinkergarten Leader Natalia DiPalma reports


Tinkergarten is a program that brings early childhood education to a park near you. In our classes, kids enjoy the freedom of independent exploration through well-designed play-based activities to promote the development of critical capabilities, including self-reliance, creativity, persistence and problem-solving. Tinkergarten classes are led by a trained, certified community of leaders — often parents — who bring a healthy, social, and engaging learning experience to their community.

I'm a local mom and I recently finished my training as a leader. I have been accepted to offer classes this fall for kids ages 1-8 years old. Classes will be held on Saturdays. I will be offering Trial classes on August 11, 18, and 25. The fall season will start on September 8th. For more information, you can email me at natalia.dipalma@mail.tinkergarten.com or sign up to my mailing list. Here is the link to my classes: 


To the kids, it’s a chance to get messy, solve mysteries, make friends and have fun. For us, it’s a chance to get together with like-minded parents and learn effective ways to play and learn with their kids.


I also run Bespoke My Heart, a party planning company on the island, and will be offering Tinkergarten Birthday Parties: Wildy Fun and Rooted in Play! These parties can be held in your own home, yard, or a nearby park.


ABOUT ME

I grew up in Venezuela where dirt, trees, sticks, and nature were our go-to toys. My favorite game was to make arepas, a staple food, out of the mud. Now, as a New Yorker for more than a decade, I found a little haven -and a reminder of these childhood memories - in a little island I call home: Roosevelt Island. I am a mom of two adorable, curious boys, Santiago (3) and Mateo (8m). I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening, playing outdoors, dancing and singing silly songs with my boys, and planning activities and theme parties for them. I'm honored to be part of the Tinkergarten family, I look forward to enjoying all the greenery this island has to offer, and I can't wait to meet you and your little ones soon! - Natalia DiPalma
