aquarium-logoLocal moms who work outside the home often tell SouthernMamas they wish there were more weekend mommy-and-me programs.

Wish granted.  A monthly mommy-and-me program for working parents will start @ UGA’s Marine Education Center and Aquarium soon. 

The first Saturday Mommy and Me will be 10-10:45 AM  April 10.

The educational programs for children between the ages of 1 and 4 include learning techniques that allow for the development of motor skills, understanding of different sizes, shapes, weights, and movements among a variety of marine animals native to Georgia waterways and the ability to identify the difference between fish, crabs, turtles, and invertebrates. The programs will include hands-on experiences with different animals, arts and crafts, a story time, and a game.

Advanced Registration required. Maximum of 15 children. $6/child for non-season pass holders, $4/child for season pass holders.  UGA’s Marine Education Center and Aquarium is at 30 Ocean Science Circle, Skidaway Island.
