The National Aquarium’s Tots and Tales Returns This Winter


Following a successful run earlier this fall, the National Aquarium’s Tots and Tales program will return on Wednesday mornings in January and February. This is the first time the program has run outside of the September and October months since it launched in 2011.

During the 20-minute program, tots will learn about the aquatic world through story time, songs, games and activities all designed to develop early learning skills like fine and gross motor skills and language skills. They can also learn about Aquarium animals through encounters and field trips to Aquarium habitats. Each week offers a brand new journey! Recommended for those aged 1-4 years.

Tots and Tales will run Wednesday, January 6 through Wednesday, February 24, 2016, 10:30 a.m. start time (program runs approx. 20 minutes).
