Our Workshops

Six Bricks

SIX BRICKS is a pedagogical approach developed by Care for Education in partnership with the LEGO® Foundation.

Six Bricks activities are short, simple exercises, many of which only take a couple of minutes to do. They are not a curriculum but they are designed to support all areas of development in the curriculum. They help to wake up a child’s brain and get them moving, thinking and remembering through playful learning.

The activities are very versatile and can be adapted and scaled up or down depending on the age and stage of the children.

Six Bricks Courses with Six Bricks Class Packs

All of our courses are delivered live, online with our Care for Education Certified Lead Trainer Miriam O’Donoghue.
