"I just wanted to take a moment to tell all parents, caretakers and grandparents about Snapology. My son Reef and I have been going to classes there since the opened. It is a Lego-based building and education studio for kids 2 years and older. Want your kiddo to learn about the Alphabet? Check. Whilst coloring and sticking feathers, on an N for nest? Check. Using blocks of different sizes and textures? Check, check, check…. Want warm, talented educators like Julie, Jessica and Steve? Triple check. Please go check them out yourself. They are next to Papalecco on Adams Avenue."

"I’ll second this! We just took our 4 year old to their Friday night class while we had a night out at Papalecco and he loved it! He had a great time with Julie and Seo. The Friday night workshops are drop-in and run from 5:30 – 9:00 pm, and they charge $10/hour (4yo and up). Thank you!

"Fantastic location for my son’s 7th birthday party. They provided food, cupcakes, party favors, a structured lego activity (with a choice of themes – Angry Birds was fun!) and plenty of free play opportunity with legos and duplos for the younger siblings. The Snapology staff took care of everything and all went smoothly. Kids were into it the whole time."

- Karen B, shared on Yelp
"I think Snapology of San Diego is excellent. I started by having them come to my house for a Lego themed birthday party. Julie was amazing at asking questions to find out my child’s interests and to create a party specific to my child.  They arrived in a timely manner with professional staff and an abundance of Legos and activities for the kids to do.  It was well structured and all the kids had an amazing time.  I have also had the opportunity to go to their center for the drop in play and summer camps. The facility is clean and organized. My kids can play there for hours creating with Legos. They especially love the Lego activities with Robotics.  The summer camp had a great theme for the week and my kids couldn’t wait to go back every day for more. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Snapology and highly recommend it to all!

-LC, shared on Yelp
"My son took a social skills class at Snapology and it helped him tremendously! The class taught him to be more flexible and to cooperate and work with other kids. Steve is a great instructor! He’s patient and kind and really understand kids. He helped my son work through his frustration and instilled in him a love for Legos…even when his creations crumble 🙂"

About us

Want to find out more about San Diego Snapology? We provide after school STEAM programs using LEGO® bricks. Our mission is to provide children an opportunity to engage in playful learning activities that spark their imagination, tap into their creativity, and lead to a love of learning. While structured learning plays a part in Snapology curriculum, we also stress creative play to take the builds to that next level.   By using imagination and cooperative team building, children learn to problem solve and work as a team to take their brick builds beyond just the structured format.  Social skills and team building are stressed during our classes.  Children learn the benefit of listening to and implementing the ideas of their peers.  

Snapology’s programs are flexible to include both typical and special needs children including children on the autism spectrum and with sensory processing needs. At our Snapology Discovery Center in Kensington, we offer a variety of learning activities within our LEGO®bricks curriculum, including:

Robotics and Gaming
STEM and STEAM Programs
Animation Studio
Preschool Programs
Birthday Parties
Enrichment Camps
Custom Events

New classes and learning activities are being added on a regular basis, so please check our event calendar for details. Our Discovery Center is conveniently located in central San Diego, off I-15, at 4204 Adams Avenue.
