SeaWees for preschoolers
9:00AM - 10:00AM Ages 3-5
SeaWees Program Description
SeaWees is a program for children ages 3-5 that has been offered through Pacific Whale Foundation since 2004. Each child is accompanied to SeaWees by his or her parent or caregiver.
SeaWees sessions consists of four classroom sessions and one “SEAfari” field adventure organized around a marine science theme.
The SeaWees program features developmentally appropriate early-childhood practice including music/movement, demonstrations and guided exploration delivered in a child-centered environment.
What Sessions Include
Sessions include 4 classes and classes cannot be registered for individually. The cost of the program is a fee for the entire session. In the case that a class is missed, it cannot be credited. We have a maximum group size of 12 children and we are excited to offer this high quality marine science curriculum created just for pre-schoolers to our keiki.
If you would like to attend our program but can only come to one or two classes, the remaining portion of your SeaWees fee will be donated to Pacific Whale Foundation's education programs.
SeaWees classes meet on Wednesday mornings from 9:00-10:00 am at Pacific Whale Foundation's Discovery Center at the Ma'alaea Harbor Shops unless otherwise noted.
Our next Seawees session will focus on "Mighty Minis":
A wide variety of small creatures can be found in marine habitats. These miniature marvels have to be tough to survive changing conditions and clever predators. We’ll meet some of these tiny creatures through stories, songs and investigations with live organisms.
