Our exciting new venture which is starting in March this year.
Recognising that there is not a lot on offer in the way of activities for children living in Pissouri village we researched some possible options that would be fun, interactive, yet affordable for families. And this is when he discovered Bricks4Kids – an amazing franchise that use LEGO bricks in classes that are designed to teach the fundamentals of S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, built around their proprietary model plans, created by engineers and architects.
We will be hosting a monthly Bricks4Kids session at O’Vrakas for children aged 3-18 years, on the last Sunday of every month, starting in March. The classes will run from 12:00 – 14:00 and the price will be €10 per child / €15 per child with food and drink. The classes are run by professional, qualified teachers so parents have the opportunity to drop their child off and enjoy a couple of hours time to themselves! Perfect!
Kick-starting these classes will be the FREE session on Sunday 27th March 2016 – We want everyone to have a chance to experience just what Bricks4Kids has to offer, so go along for the taster class and see if your kid gets hooked!
