The BRICKS 4 KIDZ® model, was founded by Michelle Cote in St. Augustine, FL. 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 3 children sign up for the Spanish and 35 children sign up for the LEGO® camp!

After seeing the excitement over the LEGO® bricks, Michelle decided to go with the LEGO® after-school class in the fall...and it took off. That Fall, Michelle found herself at 3 different elementary schools with an average of 20 students in each class every week. Now Michelle does over 20 after-school enrichment classes a week, PLUS in-school field trips, 11 camps during the summer and bunches of birthday parties every weekend!

Today BRICKS 4 KIDZ® has over 300 franchises throughout the world making it one of the fastest growing franchises in the US and Canada (and possibly the world).
