About Us

The Learning Caravan aims to inspire, empower &  connect early childhood educators and parents as co-partners in the early years.  We are an organization with big hearts for early childhood educators, children & families.  We plan and organize meaningful events to engage all stakeholders to work in partnership for the benefit of our children.

The Learning Caravan Pte Ltd made it's mark as a strong & active advocate for authentic play and pioneer in introducing loose parts play to early childhood practitioners in Singapore.  Our philosophy is largely inspired by the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach.

Our Mission


WHAT WE DO
From as early as October 2010, our team was actively involved in organisation & provision of continuing professional development events for early childhood educators. Our mission is to inspire, empower and connect early childhood educators as reflective practitioners and advocates for authentic play in the early years.  We believe that we have inspired early childhood educators through our events such as dialogue sessions, workshops, & international study tours.

THE TINKER YARD
The Tinker Yard is a process-art studio that offers experiences for art, messy & sensory play.



At The Tinker Yard, we encourage children to wonder, question, predict, investigate and experiment.  Play at our studio is child-led.   We  value and respect children's ideas. The curriculum is framed around around those big ideas.

Our process based art studio is also available for field trips, corporate team-building events, private playdates and professional development workshops for early childhood educators.

We welcome parents, children & educators to visit our studio. Please send us an email to arrange for a studio visit date.

STUDIO ENVIRONMENT
The studio is richly resourced with a diverse range of open-ended materials known as loose parts. The environment is intentionally designed and ready to offer children beautiful, open-ended materials and experiences full of possibility.  Our team works hard to regularly update our learning space at The Tinker Yard to accommodate new ideas that children have.  We welcome parents & educators to come for a visit to our studio and to speak with our team. Book a visit today.

PROGRAMMES FOR CHILDREN
Our team of reflective early years practitioners has developed programmes that are responsive and geared towards helping children discover, embrace & build upon their natural strengths.
