Denise Reznik Tinkergarten

Denise Reznik developed a passion for nature and early childhood education after becoming a parent and leaving her corporate career over 12 years ago to nurture the little ones in her life. Her two passions collided when, in 2017, she discovered Tinkergarten, a program designed by education experts that engages children in open-ended, intentional outdoor play designed to build essential life skills. She became a certified Tinkergarten teacher and, after successfully leading 3 seasons of Tinkergarten in her then hometown of Rockville, MD, her family made the move to Wilton. Although she stepped away from the program to get her family settled in their new home, one pandemic and many life changes later, she is back and more-than-ready to share the joyful experience of this program with a whole new group of explorers in Wilton! In addition to teaching Tinkergarten, Denise is also a very active volunteer in the schools and is dedicated to her environmental work as a board member of Wilton Go Green.
