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.

Tim completed his Bachelor of Engineering Degree from Monash University in 1998 and started his career in IT as a project coordinator in Malaysia. He was very much involved in the technical aspects of the computer industry in the early years and found that he could quickly develop meaningful relationships within the industry.

His role then progressed towards more customer focused positions and eventually saw him working for various worldwide organisations such as Fuji Xerox, Lexmark, HP and Dell.

In 2013, he moved to Perth with his entire family to build a new and better life for his wife and young ones. His main aim is to lead and direct a business venture that contributes to the continuous betterment of the community, focusing on childhood development. In that regard, Tim took on the BRICKS 4 KIDZ® franchise for the Applecross, Western Australia region and its surrounding suburbs (which encompasses Mt. Pleasant, Ardross, Brentwood, Alfred Cove, Booragoon, Myaree, Canning Vale, Willeton, Winthrop, Murdoch, Bateman, Bull Creek, Leeming, Rossmoyne, Riverton, Ferndale And Shelley).

Tim’s Working With Children Check number is 2718033.  Tim has Provide First Aid, Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Provide Basic Emergency Life Support qualification from St John Ambulance Western Australia.
