“My daughter attended the Robotics Workshop this week and in her words said she ‘had the best day ever!’ She went on her own and did not feel uncomfortable at any point during the day. She not only enjoyed making friends, building LEGO® and making her LEGO® move she also enjoyed the lunchtime activities. A big thanks to all at BRICKS 4 KIDZ®!!”
“My son absolutely looks forward to every school holidays so he can attend another BRICKS 4 KIDZ® workshop. He has been going every holidays for about a year and in that time he has gained more confidence with building LEGO® but most importantly he has so much more patience. Thank you to Gina and her team.”
