Small Fry Mini Programs

Want to spend some quality time with your little one while learning about the world around us?

Join us at the Tennessee Aquarium on select Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for our Small Fry Mini-Programs! Drop in from 10:15 A.M. - 11:00 A.M. to participate in fun, engaging activities designed to appeal to 2 to 5-year-olds. On these special days, we will meet live animals, play games, read stories and create fun crafts as we learn and grow together. These interactive parent-and-child programs are a great way to start your child on the path toward understanding and appreciating nature!

Programs will be held on the lower level of the River Journey building unless otherwise posted. They are FREE with aquarium admission or membership.

This fall, join aquarium experts to explore the natural world and discover the different kinds of animals that inhabit our planet. We will investigate nature and science in fun ways, use our senses to explore,  and will get eye-to-eye with critters of all kinds. Through play, stories, hands-on activities, and much more, these mini-programs are built to ensure that your little ones have a blast while making new friends and learning about nature! For further information on our Small Fry Mini-Programs, please contact Early Childhood Programs Manager, Susie Grant at scg@tnaqua.org or 423-785-4181. We look forward to learning with you soon!
