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 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.
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.

I’m currently studying electrical engineering at the Queensland University of Technology. I migrated here from the US in late 2019. Before coming here, I helped care for my deaf niece while studying arts and technology at University of Texas at Dallas.
I believe LEGO is an incredible asset to children’s learning and development. It can teach patience, develop fine motor skills, and improve problem solving. It’s incredibly rewarding to watch kids light up as their build comes to life with our Project Kit motors or show their imagination by creating a whole world with their 3D Colour Build.
Annie’s Blue Card number is 2040383/1.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education (Primary) at The University of Southern Queensland. Prior to this I spent over 10 years working in the Auction industry, selling everything from paperclips to aeroplanes. In my younger years I competed internationally in Track and Field.
I believe that play based learning is fundamental in childrens’ development, and using LEGO is a great way to teach a variety of skills, such as problem solving and fine motor skills. I love being able to assist and watch the children develop and grow, exploring the world with their imagination.
