Common Questions about our Holiday Workshops & Activities
Will the whole session be LEGO? I'm not sure my child can concentrate that long!
We hold breaks during the day and have games and activities ready to suit kids of all ages!
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.
Are most of the participants boys?
No, we have lots of girls attend our workshops – LEGO® is definitely for girls too!
Sometimes kids arrive at our workshops with their siblings or friends and we make sure they are grouped together for the day. However, lots of kids don’t know anyone when they first arrive and, after working together to build fantastic creations and playing games together in the break times, form really great friendships.
Are most of the participants older children? I'm thinking of sending my 5 year old. They are quite intimidated by big boys!
We have a range of ages attend our workshops, from age 5 to 12. We group the kids at the beginning of the day according to age, ability and to keep siblings and friends together!
We have a ratio of never more than eight kids to one instructor so there is always someone there to support every child and make sure they achieve their builds.
Most of our models have at least two levels of difficulty and the activities are also very open-ended, so we really do cater for all ages.
Does the program qualify for childcare rebate?
We are not able to offer a child care rebate. Many of our staff are university education students, so while they do not have childcare qualifications, they have a great knowledge and skill with working with children. They are more 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.
What do other parents say about the program?
Parents love our workshops. They all know that their children are in the safe care of BRICKS 4 KIDZ instructors, all who have Working With Children checks and at least one who has a current First Aid certificate. All instructors have been trained with special safety policies in place at all our workshops.
Parents also like to know that their child will have a super fun day! Kids are given different LEGO® activities which they don’t have at home and taught different building techniques. They are given time to use their imagination and they will make lots of friends!
Do I provide food and drinks for my child?
Yes! We ask parents to provide a nut-free morning tea, lunch and an afternoon snack (even though we remind all kids at the start of the day to never share their food). Don’t forget their water bottles!
What clothing is suitable?
We ask that you provide hats all year around for the children to go outside. We ask children wear long sleeves and pants if it is cool. Please provide a jumper if needed.
Children need to wear covered shoes, for example sneakers, we play outside at breaks.
What if my child cannot 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.
