Brick by brick, we're building a better future!
We offer Early Engineers because too many children shy away from math and science.
We want our kids, and yours, to be exposed to topics like velocity, momentum and bioluminescence, alongside a familiar friend, the Lego brick. That way, when they go off to Junior High and High School, they will be more comfortable and willing to raise their hand when these topics come up. Familiarity now, will lead to the confidence to engage later.
All of our instructors are fingerprinted and cleared through the CA Department of Justice. A combination of Lego enthusiasts and future teachers, all of our instructors go through a comprehensive training program prior to teaching.
We know every proud parent or grandparent can't always come for pickup to see your child's latest masterpiece. That's why our instructors take photos in every class and send you a link to view photos in an online gallery!
Do you combine age groups?
We prefer to separate the grades K-2 and 3-6 into two classes so that all of the students are challenged at the appropriate level. Depending on enrollment we may have one class with all of the students- because our student to teacher ratio is low; we are able to guarantee that our younger and beginner students get extra attention and our older and advanced students are given additional challenges.
Does my child need to bring anything?
No, Early Engineers provides all materials.

After Early Engineers class, do I need to pick up my child from the Early Engineers classroom?

Can you pick my child up at his/her classroom?
We do pick up our Kindergarten students from their classrooms on the first day of a session or a kinder from after-school care, if it is indicated on the flyer. We will ensure that all children make it to the Early Engineers classroom before the class starts. If you are worried about your child finding the classroom, instruct them to go to the front office and they will help direct him/her to the class.
Who are your teachers?
Early Engineers teachers are a combination of Lego enthusiasts and current or future teachers. All of our instructors go through comprehensive training on the Early Engineers teaching process. In addition, all of our instructors are fingerprinted and cleared through the CA Department of Justice.
Is every class or session different?
Yes, Early Engineers projects will never repeat.
What kind of projects will my child do?
Our kids need the real world skills and experience that can only be gained through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based learning programs. Early Engineers is a creative building program that uses Legos and K'Nex to help students gain STEM knowledge through a variety of weekly projects.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you choose to cancel you registration on or after the session start date, a $25 cancellation fee will be collected. The $25 cancellation fee will be waived if you choose a gift credit in lieu of a refund.
What if my child is sick and misses a class?
In the event of your child becoming ill during the program, we will issue you a pro-rated gift credit of the program fee, less any discounts. To receive this credit, you must call to inform Dream Enrichment of the absence within 1 week and the max number of absences you can be credited for, within a school year, is 4.
