Seawees for preschoolers
Oceans of fun for little ones!
About the Program
Now in its 8th year, SeaWees is a program for children ages 3-5. Each child is accompanied to SeaWees by his or her parent or caregiver. Each SeaWees session 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.
All of the 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.
The cost of a 5-week session is $40 for Pacific Whale Foundation Members, and $50 for non-members. If you wish to enroll in just a single class (“drop-in” ), the fee is $12. A second child in the same family is 50% off.
If you have questions or wish to register, please call Pacific Whale Foundation at 808-249-8811 ext. 1. Please note that preregistration is required.
To reach the SeaWees Program Director, please call 808- 280-3163.
