About Bricks 4 Kidz
Bricks 4 Kidz offers Lego-brick building activities designed by engineers and architects in after-school classes, preschool classes, summer camps and birthday parties. The concept was created by a mother, Michelle Cote, in St. Augustine, Florida, in 2008, and began franchising a year later.
Bricks 4 Kidz offers fun, hands-on programs where kids ages 3-13+ can learn, build and play with LEGO® bricks. Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play.
