Let's Build Character


In Preschool we’re building amazing things. Through play children build essential skills for life.

Learning Through Play

LEGO® Education Preschool solutions extend the inherent fun and limitless creativity of LEGO® and LEGO® DUPLO® bricks, enabling teachers to deliver engaging and playful learning experiences. This lays the foundation for the childrens' future character.

To celebrate Math Awareness Month, in April we are featuring Math Train. Explore more below and read our insightful research papers focusing on playful learning.  

For a limited time, enter for your chance to win a LEGO Education Math Train Set.
