OLD SCHOOL TOOLS for NEW SCHOOL LEARNING

Children Are Born to Build

ConstructionKids introduces new builders to a broad range of materials and tools. We study the natural and man-made world around us, while learning to work individually as well as part of a team. Our goal is to share the joy of building, revising, and repairing.

Real Tools for Small Hands

Our kids work on individual and group projects with real tools and materials that are scaled and selected for small hands. Creativity and problem solving are fostered. If your child can imagine it, we'll help him/her build it—safely and with the guidance of experienced grown-up hands.

Learn about our after school programs here. We also offer special programs for school field trips, Girl and Boy Scout troops, toddlers, homeschool groups, as well as birthday parties. Contact us, if you're interested.
