*PolyPals* is back! The popular MoMath program for toddlers and preschoolers returns.

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.

*PolyPals* offers the opportunity to listen to math-themed stories and have fun exploring the concepts behind them. Engage your toddlers and preschoolers in these playful activities to help them develop a strong foundation.

Children will participate in songs, stories, and activities tied to a different theme each week. Patterns, shapes, numbers, and more — *PolyPals* 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 session. Program registration includes museum admission. Free admission starts at 3 pm for all *PolyPals* sessions.

*PolyPals* runs on Wednesdays, from September 26 through December 19. Sessions are 30 minutes long.

• 3:45 pm – 4- & 5-year-olds

• 4:30 pm – 2- & 3-year-olds

(Please note *PolyPals* will not be meeting on October 3, November 7, and December 5).
