BRICKS 4 KIDZ – Kids Franchise – LEGO® Bricks Kids Franchise
BFK was founded in St. Augustine, Florida in 2008 by Michelle Cote, a former teacher and mother of two elementary school students. While applying for approval for an after-school Spanish class, she noticed a category for “Creative Science” on the school’s application form.
As her own children were LEGO® fans, she inquired about the possibility of creating a class based on students using LEGO® bricks. She was approved for both Spanish and LEGO® Lab, and created and distributed promotional flyers for both classes. When she had only three students sign up for the Spanish session and 35 for the LEGO Lab, she knew she had encountered something with significant potential.
Ms. Cote began her first after school LEGO® Lab in the spring of 2008 and called it Bricks 4 Kidz®. The demand for Bricks 4 Kidz® was so great and immediate, she expanded the program to over 12 schools and now operates 20 classes a week.
Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, we play… with LEGO® Bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with exciting themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks. Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play. At Bricks 4 Kidz, we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
We offer activities for children ages 3-13+, including:
After-school enrichment classes
Week-long summer camps
Kidz Night Out
Our programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated. Model building provides opportunities for problem-solving and helps kids develop an appreciation for how things work. All this takes place while kids are having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
