SPRING enrollment is now open!

Coastal Nature Play offers classes using Tinkergarten curriculum in Brunswick County, NC for young children and their grownups!  In these one-hour weekly classes, we guide families through songs, movement, exploration, and purposeful play. 

SPRING classes

Each season, we help children to develop one of our 8 core skills kids need to become curious, capable learners who can contribute to their world. This Spring, we focus on creativity—the ability to both imagine original ideas or solutions to problems and do what needs to be done to make them happen. Creative thinking is a critical skill; not only for artists or musicians, but also for problem solving, maintaining relationships and just experiencing and being in the world.

Ericka Sargent

As a homeschool mom of an active 7-year-old and an Early Childhood Educator, I know how important it is for children to get outside and explore! I’m excited to bring the Tinkergarten curriculum to Brunswick County! I’ve taught Tinkergarten classes in Southington, CT, since May 2019, and now my family has moved to NC! We are excited to meet new friends in our new community. Let’s Play!
