Bricks4Kidz

Providing an environment where learning is celebrated, friendships are made and future scientists and mathematicians are created is at the forefront of what we believe at Bricks 4 Kidz. Our high-quality, unique learning experience is delivered using one of the world’s favorite toys: LEGO® Bricks. We take steps to further children's understanding of the world through concepts such as physics and engineering, while engaging in activities that stimulate creativity and develop new skill sets. In our diverse programs, students learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and how it applies to their own lives. We aim to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM fields as research shows that adults working in the engineering field are more successful and receive a salary of 20% more than their peers. They also report greater life satisfaction, and we at Bricks 4 Kidz love that!
