Sponsored: The Most Important Education in Life is Financial Literacy

Having only learnt about financial literacy at the age of 30,
I can't stress enough about learning to manage money & investing.

So when I heard about RichMinds Academy Program, 
I was thrilled.
Financial Literacy for Little Kids.
How Amazing!

This is definitely one thing that is lacking from our educational system. 
We were mostly taught to study hard, score well, and settle for a good paying job.
But, no one has ever divulge the secrets of money management/investment!!

Lesson was held at
(Kids Arts & Academics Mentorship Program)
Rochester Mall Branch

Off to a very Good Start.
Sophia is all excited about decorating her personal RichMinds Academy folder.

The 5 attributes to Financial Freedom
Kiddie Style
(Spend, Save, Earn, Share, Build)

Kids were taught about money & different currencies.

Hiroshi simply prefers notes

They even made their very own wallets.

Learning about "Needs" and "Want"

And even understood what it meant by 
"More Value for Money"

This is Sophia thinking really, really hard 
about what to spend her money on.

Learning to Save by Making Piggy Banks

Sophia in absolute shock about the amount of money needed to buy an Ipad!

Now off to some baking fun!

Run, Run 
as fast as you can,
You can't catch me,
I'm the Gingerbread Man!

Let's start pipping!

The Contented Smile

After all the baking frenzy,
kids were taught to share their bakes.

Both kids had a jolly good time
 and asked if we'll be coming back again for another class.

New friendships were forged

Special Thanks to Richminds Academy 
and all those hardworking mentors 
for making learning about financial literacy a joy!

I would highly recommend this program to other parents out there 
who are interested to teach their kids about the value for money 
in a fun and engaging way.
