History of BRICKS 4 KIDZ®
The BRICKS 4 KIDZ® model was founded by Michelle Cote in St. Augustine, Florida. Michelle started an after-school Spanish class (outside the school system). In the spring of 2008 while filling out the forms to become a “School Board Vendor,” teaching Spanish at the school the following school year, Michelle noticed a category on the form for “creative science.” Her son loves to play with LEGO® bricks, and she thought to herself, “Maybe I could lead a creative science LEGO® class too”. Michelle was awarded the bid for both the after-school Spanish and the creative science LEGO® class. That summer Michelle advertised a Spanish camp and a LEGO® camp. She had three children sign up for the Spanish camp, but 35 children signed up for the LEGO® camp!
After seeing the excitement over the LEGO® bricks, Michelle decided to go with the LEGO® after-school class – and it took off. Michelle found herself at three different primary schools with an average of 20 students in each class every week. Now Michelle does over 20 after-school classes a week, plus school incursions, programs during the school holidays and bunches of birthday parties every weekend!
