More about the class:
LEAP4Kidz classes are an integrated learning program offering introduction to a variety of topics using Lego bricks as a learning tool to foster thought and creativity. The class hour is structured in 3 parts: Lesson of the day discussion with the whole class; Project model building from a provided planogram completed in pairs; Creative free play (“Master Builder”) time. Children are required to engage in all parts of class. Children are not allowed to opt out of one section without opting out of the class for the day.
Lego’s are used for demonstrative and learning purposes. The goal isn’t to create a complex model or follows a series of directions, but to think about the learning topic for the day using a hand-on project. The complexity of the building varies from model to model as is necessary to demonstrate the larger topic of discussion. The goal of each class is to get kids thinking about “how they would do it”. Not every child will complete the class build each time and some children may find a model solution easier than others. The education is in the process. Children will be challenged to problem solve, create, and find solutions themselves. Children will also be asked to help each other and work collaboratively. Each child will have a different learning style and level of skill in problem solving.
LEAP4Kidz is not set up to support children with special needs. If your child requires special care or attention it is recommended that a parent stay during class. Any children not able to follow the rules of class will be excused.
