About Us

The BRICKS 4 KIDZ® model was founded by Michelle Cote in St. Augustine, Florida. Michelle initially started an after-school Spanish class in the spring of 2008, and then thought to herself, “My son loves to play with LEGO® – maybe I could lead a creative science LEGO® after-school workshop too”.  Michelle launched both the after-school Spanish class and the LEGO® workshop.  She had three children sign up for the Spanish class, but 35 children signed up for the LEGO® workshop!

Today BRICKS 4 KIDZ® has over 750 locations in 45 countries. BRICKS 4 KIDZ® is a Child Safe Child Friendly organisation and our number one priority in any activity is the safety of children under our supervision.  Our Child Safe Child Friendly policy is available here for download.

Who is the team in Logan City?

Tiara Lesslar

Tiara received her Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) from QUT and taught at an independent school in Logan City for 3 years before relocating to Singapore in 2003. Here she worked as a kindergarten teacher at an international school for 13 years before returning to Australia to teach at the same school in Logan City.

A strong advocate for play based learning, Tiara believes the BRICKS 4 KIDS® programs deliver fun and creative ways in which children can review and consolidate the concepts taught in the classroom.

Tiara is a registered teacher with the Queensland College of Teachers, her Exemption Card number is 1668285/1 and she is First Aid qualified.

Lance Lesslar

While Lance served in the Armed Forces in Singapore he completed his Bachelor of Applied Science in Information Technology at RMIT. Leaving the Armed Forces at the end of 2006, Lance became a full time stay at home dad to the first of his 3 children. In 2012 Lance set up an online business selling baby related products, which he ran successfully until migrating to Logan City, Australia in 2016.

The combination of two of Lance’s favourite things – LEGO® and Star Wars® – is what attracted him to BRICKS 4 KIDZ® initially, but he is also a champion for the fun way in which children get to interact with their peers and develop life long learning skills in the process.

Lance’s Blue Card number is 1668238/1.

Dominic Ghikas

Hey guys! I have spent over a decade playing with LEGO® and adjudicating fights between my brothers over pieces. There are buckets of odds and ends in my house, but several Star Wars sets remain intact to this day. I strongly believe there’s something magical about such a simple, versatile ‘toy’ and love sharing that passion with others.

I love technology and am currently studying Computer Science at university. I run a few of our After School programs, and if you’re interested in the Robotics workshops I run please contact us.

Dominic’s Blue Card number is 1760406/1.
