MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM PROGRAMS
Splash Zone/Head Start Discovery Programs
Since 2000, we've been connecting Head Start preschoolers and their parents to the Aquarium and the oceans. Although they live nearby, this marks the first time many of these children see the ocean.
"We realized how important the ocean is and how to take care of it. My kids talk constantly about things they've learned - as the children learn, we adults do too."
– Mayra Hernandez, Head Start Discovery Program parent
