Welcome to Bricks 4 Kidz-Northern Virginia
Bricks4Kidz provides an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, build, and play with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans designed by engineers and architects, all with exciting themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks. Our specially-designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for our approach to educational play. We offer activities for children ages 3-13+, including after-school enrichment classes, summer camps, holiday camps, birthday parties, preschool classes, and Kidz Nights Out. Call for more information or stop in today! By appointment only!
