Join us fortnightly on a Friday morning and explore various topics using LEGO* as the learning tool. We encourage parent interaction with your children to enhance the experience for them – however this is up to you as you know your children the best.
Recommended Age: As a guideline we recommend ages 5+. We ask where possible that parents stay or if you have to leave to ask another adult to supervise your child.
Younger siblings: Are welcome to come along, they must be supervised by an adult at all times. We have available books, games and DUPLO too. They are welcome to join in alongside you and older siblings taking part in the program if they wish to – we don’t discourage joining in!
