Natural Start Preschool
“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder… he needs the companionship
of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement
and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Field trip to the Seattle Aquarium for both Explorers and Jr. Explorers
Date: May 12, 2015
Where: Meet at the Seattle Aquarium at 9:45 am for check-in – we have to check in and pay for entrance as a group so if you are late you will have to pay the full priced admission charge to enter the Aquarium.
The preschool Seastars and Urchins programs will go for approximately 45-60 minutes. There will be two separate classrooms for Explorers and Jr. Explorers. When the programs are over children and parents are free to explore the Aquarium for as long as they want.
Payment: TBD for adults and children 4 years and older . Children 3 and under are free. Payment is due at the aquarium – cash or checks are acceptable and checks should be made out to Natural Start Preschool.
Lunch: There are three options for lunch. There is a café on the 2nd level where you can purchase food and eat it there. For sack lunches, you can eat in the Life on the Edge exhibits, against the east and west walls. There is limited seating in those areas as well and we ask that everyone clean up after themselves. If the weather is nice, there are picnic table in Waterfront Park just south of the Aquarium. Students will not be allowed back into the Aquarium without their assigned chaperone. Please note that you are not able to bring your sack lunch into the café nor are you able to take your purchased food from the café down into the exhibits.
