After School & Saturday Programs

Launch a Bricks 4 Kidz program in your child’s school!  Parents that successfully start a STEM Learning Lunches or After-School Enrichment program will receive FREE enrollment in the session for their child!

Participants design and construct machines, buildings and other models using traditional and/or technic LEGO® bricks, power functions and our proprietary designs and plans.  Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity, torque, scale, gears, axles and beams.  We encourage imagination and critical thinking as kids are challenged to modify pieces and test outcomes to expand on their learning.  Start creating!

Classes at Hop, Sip, Jump Play Cafe (Silver Springs NW)

Little Builders: Water Water Everywhere! (Unparented, 3-5YRS)

Wednesdays, April 5-May 3 from 4:30-5:15PM

Water is part of our everyday lives.  Many interesting creatures lives in the water.  People can travel across bodies of water on boats.  Children will be fascinated to learn about some amazing things related to water.  They will practice letter recognition, size comparison, shape and colour identification, counting, placement, vocabulary and patterning.

Added Bonus! Class registration fee allows families to come early and/or stay late and enjoy the indoor playground amenities for an evening of fun! Kids must be supervised by parents outside of class time. Play structures for up to 10 years old.


 

Early Engineers: Construction Craze (5-12YRS)

Wednesdays, April 5-May 3 from 5:30-6:30pm.

Put on your hard hat and head over to our construction site!  Make your own motorized models of tools of the trade from a hand-held power drill and power saw to a tough, all terrain bulldozer and dump truck.  Would you be surprised to learn that one of these objects has a history stretching from the Stone Age to the Space Age?  And who thought of making a saw blade in the shape of a circle?  Where does the word bulldozer come from?  How big is the biggest dump truck?  Build your knowledge of construction at Bricks 4 Kidz!

Cock a doodle doo! Children will feel like farmers as they learn a few animals that are found on farms around the world. These are not only the typical barn animals we associate with farms. For instance, did you know that yaks are related to cows and they are used on farms in some countries for the same purposes as cows are used on farms in America? Children will learn how each animal plays a role on a farm. Letter recognition, size comparison, shape and colour identification, counting, placement, vocabulary and patterning will all be part of this Fun at the Farm unit!
