ADVANTAGES OF INTRODUCING FINANCIAL LITERACY
Financial literacy for children is vitally important to help them avoid the common financial pitfalls so many adults experience. The games and other activities created to aid teaching important money skills make learning simple and fun. When children learn about and become comfortable handling money early, they’ll be that much better prepared to step out on their own when the time comes.
Obtaining key skills to budget and manage their resources will make it easier for youth to live successful lives. The curriculum takes advantage of the knowledge that children have different learning styles, and many kids learn best by doing.
