Learning, building, playing – all three go hand in hand at Vernon’s new Bricks4Kidz franchise.
Bricks4Kidz, owned by Karen Peters, offers project-based programs designed to teach the principles and methods of engineering and architecture, as well as concepts across a variety of subject areas including math, science and history using Lego bricks.
Aimed at children ages three to 12, the activities are designed to trigger kids’ lively imaginations and build their self-confidence.
“We strive to foster creativity and problem solving and enable children to learn not only by listening and observing, but also by using their fine motor skills and spatial intelligence,” said Peters, who hosted a grand opening Saturday at the store (#107-2411 Highway 6).
Peters said Bricks4Kidz places an emphasis on providing a relaxed and fun learning environment to facilitate problem solving and to stimulate curiosity and self-expression.
Bricks4Kidz offers after-school programs, weekend classes, birthday parties, homeschool programs, preschool programs, in-school field trips, daycamps, pro-d programs, and kids night out. These can all be run out of the creativity centre, schools or any other location.
