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.
Who is the team in South West Sydney?
Maria a busy mum to her gorgeous children Vanessa 13 and Joshua 7. She quickly became aware of the challenges of keeping the kids busy and having fun.
In 2014 she started her own kids’ arts & crafts business called Happy Kids Sand Art. The idea for a creative, fun craft business was obvious. She always dreamed of starting a children’s entertainment service and it finally came true. She provided this service to all kids at fetes, fairs, festivals, school holiday workshops and Vacation Care.
But that was not enough! An opportunity with Bricks 4 Kidz came along one day and she knew right away it was perfect for her. Her passion with working with children and making kids happy is what she does best.
Maria is committed to making Bricks 4 Kidz a successful business in South West Sydney
