WE LEARN, WE BUILD, WE PLAY… Bricks 4 Kidz®is an STEAM-based, enriching, hands-on experience. Each week students build a new model using Lego® Bricks and Bricks 4 Kidz proprietary kits and designs. Themes such as Space, Inventions, Life Science, Travel, and much more are age/grade appropriate and provide a high level of interest. Kids can also build their own creations in our creative play box. Creativity is encouraged and celebrated! Our “builders” have a lot of fun. At the end of the semester, your child takes home his/her own creatively designed mini-figure to remember what a great time he/she had! 

Thursdays It’s LEGO® time with Bricks4Kidz®. Each class is STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and is structured to be a fun, enriching experience for your child. Your child will build a new project each week. Our unique models are designed by Bricks4Kidz professional teachers and architects to teach concepts across a variety of topics. We start each class with a discussion about key concepts related to the model, then get right into the building. Working with a partner, your child will experience the hands-on fun of seeing his/her model come together piece by piece from concept to completion. By using one of our proprietary project kits, kids learn that with a little imagination, they can create something amazing. Each week your child will take home a page showing what they built that day in this wonderful class. At the end of the semester, your child takes home his/her own creatively designed mini-fig to remember what a great time they had. This fee is based on the 14-week session. Full payment is due prior to first class.

Everyone will love this charming, upbeat adaptation of a literary classic. Mary Lennox is sent to live in England after her parents die in India. Misselthwaite Manor turns out to be a gloomy fortress. Her uncle is rarely home and his young son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he’s an incurable invalid. Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been locked up for years. With the gardener’s apprentice, Dickon, a lad who can talk to the animals, Mary coaxes the garden back to life. The garden seems to have a wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to help restore Colin to health and a reunion with his father. Musical Scores are bright and delightful and roles are geared for BOYS and GIRLS. Beautiful costuming and props.

Imaginary us Maximum

Calling all artists who like to think outside the box, draw outside the lines – but not be told: “that’s not how you’re supposed to do it!” We will look to expand your creative skills and nurture your imagination.

Each week we will explore an especially imaginative artist (like Dali, Kandinsky, Escher or Warhol), select a subject like Mythological Creatures, Aliens, Hot Air Balloons, Bird Houses, Masks, Robots, or Wild Food Creations, then provide the materials and support and let you set your imagination soaring!
