About Me

Hello there! My name is Tara and I’m so glad you found your way to Little Pine Learners. I am a mom, wife, and early childhood educator. My two little boys are always inspiring me, especially when it comes to teaching them fun new ways to learn about the natural world. I created Little Pine Learners to share these ideas and inspire people to spend more time learning and playing outdoors with their children or students. Whether you are a busy parent, teacher, or caregiver; I hope you find fun ideas on this site to try with your little nature lover! Please have a look around and join me on my other social media sites listed on my home page.
