MathPlay colorful word

MoMath’s newest program for preschoolers

Led by an experienced preschool specialist, MathPlay offers children the opportunity to play well-developed games that help broaden math skills, improve problem-solving skills, fine-tune motor coordination, and enhance communication and social skills.  Recent studies have shown that a child’s math skills upon entering kindergarten can be a strong predictor of future academic performance in both math and reading throughout the elementary grades.  Math learning promotes working memory, improves attention, and increases other basic cognitive skills.

Engage your preschoolers in playful activities to help them develop a strong foundation in math.  Children will participate in songs, stories, and activities tied to a different theme each week.  Patterns, shapes, numbers, and more — MathPlay is a great way to enrich your child’s day with mathematical inspiration.

Adult registration is not required, but a caregiver must be present during each session.

Classes meet on Thursdays, from October 31 through December 19 (except for Thanksgiving Day, November 28). Sessions are 30 minutes long.
