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.
