From birth, a child has choices. At first parents make the decisions, but before the end of the first year, children are capable of making some simple selections.
If children are allowed to make easy choices as toddlers, then making decisions for themselves as they grow becomes less difficult. This program introduces guided, money-related, decision-making activities for children in preschool and kindergarten.
Preschool-aged children are capable of learning simple spending plans. Early training in categorizing money establishes patterns for future money-management behavior. Junior Prodigy introduces children to the concept of dividing their money into categories, namely “save,” “spend,” and “share.” We present activities that will help children understand that money is limited in quantity and must be divided for different purposes.
Whether you are using our virtual stock market simulation or our personal budgeting game, each includes embedded curriculum to make sure students are learning each step of the way. Resources are available for larger programs, trading rooms, and campus wide financial literacy initiatives.
