HERE’S WHAT SOME OF OUR OTHER PARENTS HAVE TO SAY:

  • Excellent, friendly staff. Kids always have something to do. Have enjoyed it every time. It’s always different so they are not building the same every time they go.
  • The friendly and energetic staff did a fantastic job in creating a wonderful experience for my son and the other kids where they can share their passion for Lego
  • It was really great. He would love to come again next school holidays. thank you.
  • My son has a wonderful time, every time and is always learning lots! not just about Lego 🙂
  • My son enjoyed the mining and crafting workshop. There were lots of options for him to choose from and complete. I also like the way the kids interact with each other out of common interest. I felt he was in safe hands and I liked the photos from the day (so did he!) Thank you.
  • Awesome afternoon kids loved it couldn’t stop talking about it
  • As soon as we left my son asked can I do that again please?

Common Questions about our Workshops

What Ages are our workshops suited for?
Children are welcome at our workshops from as young as five, however all kids attending must be in kindergarten in primary school at least in order to attend. Each workshop has a guide to suitable ages for the specific workshop, with some workshops more suited to older or younger kids. If in doubt please give us a call to discuss.

How many children are likely to attend?
Our Workshops are limited to 24 kids unless otherwise stated.

What does a day at Bricks 4 Kidz look like?

During the session, kids are broken up into different groups and rotate between a series of stations. These are structured with a particular time allocated at each one and all have different LEGO® activities on them. There is an instructor at all these stations.

We also have time for creative play with our mountains of LEGO®, where kids can decide what they would like to build and use their imagination!

We incorporate a morning tea break, lunch break and afternoon break into our days. We all sit down together to eat and then play.

What should my Child bring?
Please note that food is not provided. Please provide a nut-free snack for your child to enjoy during the workshop. If staying for the full day children will need to bring their own nut-free lunch, morning and afternoon snack and a drink. Please make sure your child wears covered shoes, sunscreen and brings a hat! We will supervise them outside at breaks.

PLEASE NOTE: At some venues this may mean that your children will be taken to a public place under our supervision. If you have any issues with this, please contact us to discuss prior to the workshop.

How many staff will there be?
Our staff ratios are 1 staff for every 8 kids minimum. For a full workshop we will provide 3 staff to supervise the kids. While activities in BRICKS 4 KIDZ® workshops with LEGO® Bricks are very safe, we place a very high focus on child welfare – at least one staff member at every one of our activities will have a valid First Aid certificate! All staff are working with children checked.

Do my kids get to take the LEGO Home?
No, we are an activities based program and our LEGO® Kits are used for a number of different workshops. Kids get a gift from Bricks 4 Kidz® depending on the workshop they attended. A full day workshop is usually a hat or a shirt and a half day workshop is usually a bag-tag and a wristband. Kids also get to take home any craft they have built during the day (full day workshops only).

What time can I drop off / pick up?

No, we do not offer care before or after the workshops.  Doors will open from 8.45am for children to be dropped off for a full day or morning session. Drop off will be from 12:45 for an afternoon session.

Parents are welcome to come in 30 minutes before the finish to see what their child is building. We ask that all children are picked up promptly at the completion of the workshop – 12pm for a morning session or 4pm for an afternoon or full day session.

Does the program qualify for the Childcare Rebate?

We are not able to offer a child care rebate. Many of our staff are teachers and university students (studying teaching), and some have early childhood or teachers aide qualifications. They have good knowledge and experience working with children and are equipped to work and interact with primary-aged children.

We also have a ratio of never more than eight kids to each instructor, which allows the day to be a really fun day for all involved.

How can I get a better price?
We offer a group booking rate for groups of 3 or more, so get some friends together and give us a call. We will provide a unique booking code which can be shared between your group and provides a 10% discount on enrolment. We also offer discounts for people who book in our earlybird period. To get on our earlybird mailing list click HERE.

What if my child can't make a workshop?
If your child is visibly sick or carrying a high temperature on the day of the class, please keep your child at home! We will make up the workshop at the next opportunity.

Make up classes & transfers for other reasons will be accommodated as long as there is room in the class.

What is your cancellation policy?
We are happy to accommodate a transfer or a credit for a future workshop if you have to cancel a booking, however if a refund is requried, please make note of our cancellation policy:

  • Cancellations made at least THREE weeks from the start date of the school holiday workshop will receive an 80% refund.
  • Cancellations made TWO to THREE weeks from the start date of the workshop will receive a 50% refund.
  • There are no refunds for workshops cancelled LESS than TWO weeks prior to the scheduled date of the workshop.
