Tinkergarden in June: E-Book for Parents!

We need your help! Tinkergarden is the first early childcare centre in Trinidad and Tobago devoted to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) for children 5 and under - and we need your help to make it to September!

The best measure of our success is the achievements and promotion of our graduates - children coming from Tinkergarden have successfully gone on to top Primary schools such as: Maria Regina, St. Andrew's, Holy Name Prep, St. Monica's, Holistic Primary, St. Bernadette's, Dunross, Arbor, The University School, and many others! This shows that our STEM-focused, play-based, hands-on program is successful at not only engaging the children in critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity, but also in developing traditional academic skills that are required for entry into local primary schools! 

This past January, we spent most of our savings on renovating and moving to a newly upgraded location in Woodbrook, Port of Spain, which provides more space and a more streamlined environment for the children to explore and learn.

The timing, however, was unfortunate. Our rent, much higher at the new location, would have been manageable without Covid, however being forced to close because of the pandemic for nearly 6 months is a huge challenge to the survival of our beloved Tinkergarden.

Unlike many other private schools in Trinidad and elsewhere, we refuse to ask parents to pay school fees (whether in part or in full) while we are closed because that would not be fair to you. Instead, we are asking you to support us by donating what is manageable for you, and in exchange you will receive help from us to engage our Tinkergardeners while at home during these months!

THIS MONTH, we are offering our TINKERGARDEN E-BOOK FOR PARENTS which contains dozens of activity suggestions, ideas to spark creativity, guidelines to support critical thinking in your child during play, tips from the Tinkergarden teachers for
success at home, and more!

Each month we will be releasing great new ways to support each other through these difficult times, such as individual learning plans for your child, teacher support, and more! So please stay tuned!

We thank you for contributing any amount, no matter how big or small! These are hard times for everyone which is why we chose to go this route. I know that Tinkergarden makes a difference in the lives of every child who comes into our school, and this pandemic is not going to be the end of us. Please help us achieve our goal to make it to September, for our school and for our Tinkergardeners.
