About Bricks 4 Kidz®…

Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, we play… with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with exciting themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks.  Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play. At Bricks 4 Kidz, we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.

We offer activities for children ages 3-13+, including:

 

After School Enrichment Classes

Bricks 4 Kidz Night Out

Bricks 4 Kidz Birthday Parties

Summer Camps 2014- REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!!!

 

Our programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated.  Model building provides opportunities for problem-solving and helps kids develop an appreciation for how things work. All this takes place while kids are having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
