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 6+. With parent involvement 5 year old children are more than welcome.
Younger siblings: Please bring them along as there will be DUPLO and other LEGO available for them to play with while the session runs. 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!
