Sea School

Make a song and dance about it because Sea School is back with a splash! AQWA's pre-school program for ages 3 to 5 runs for 8 weeks and incorporates music, movement, fine-motor skills and age-suitable science! In our ocean classroom each week you'll meet a new sea creature through fun-facts, sign-language, a craft activity and Storytime! To keep things moving, everyone will get jiggling like a jellyfish to a familiar tune and stretch like an octopus into yoga poses. To finish, you'll enjoy a tour to a your creature's home habitat with your friendly Ocean Guide for an up-close encounter. Plus you'll collect a take home 'creature report' each week to continue the learning at home.
