ENRICHMENT VENDORS:

Brag & Build (PreK, K, 1, 2)

10 years ago, in a living room floor in St. Augustine, Florida, a mother and son duo started creating and building with LEGO® Bricks. As each brick clicked into place with the next, Michelle realized how much learning was taking place. Having a background in architecture and a love of design, she soon put those CAD skills to work to create her own models for the two of them to build together. As the word spread, students, teachers and administrators were asking for programs at their schools. What started out as one mom’s playtime with her son has now expanded into a global franchise with more than 500 locations in over  40 countries.
