This new, one-hour class at the New England Aquarium was created for young children ages 12 to 24 months based on feedback from the community. "Sea Squirts Preview" introduces you and your child to the wonders of the aquarium and the ocean world. Activities focus on developing motor skills, independence and socialization, as well as introduce your young one to new materials. Over the course of four weeks, your child will become more comfortable in the aquarium classroom setting and you will become more confident exploring the aquarium with your children outside of class time. Classes run for one hour and include free play, circle time with songs, stories, art projects and a visit to the aquarium exhibits. Classes will incorporate a live animal encounter when appropriate to the topic. Classes meet in the aquarium's Ocean Center, which is across the plaza from the main aquarium building, and a minimum of five child participants is required to run a session. Mondays, 9:30 a.m. & 11 a.m. Four-week session: Jan. 28, Feb. 4, 11 & 25. Members, $50.00; non-members $95.00. Adults are included in the cost of each child. Aquarium admission is included in the cost for non-members as classes end in the aquarium. A $2 service fee will be added to each ticket. New England Aquarium, Central Wharf, Boston.
