Money as You Grow is an initiative from the President. On the website, Money as You Grow, breaks up kids ages into the following age groups : 3-5, 6-10, 11-13, 14-18 and 18+ and shares various thoughts and topics to discuss with kids. These age groups can be found along the bottom of the webpage.
In addition to this site, if you want to work more in depth with money and the initiative you can Money as You Learn to incorporate more education and learning that goes along with the common core in teaching. This site also shares Personal Finance Big Ideas which looks awesome. I think I am going to be using some of these with my nephew who is 4 years old now.
There are several ideas that we as nannies can utilize to help the children we nanny into financially responsible individuals. Make sure you check out both of the websites.
Money as You Grow was recommended as an initiative from the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, chaired by John W. Rogers and vice-chaired by Amy Rosen.
The initiative, spearheaded by Beth Kobliner, chair of the Council’s Money as You Grow working group, offers 20 essential, age-appropriate financial lessons—with corresponding activities—that kids need to know as they grow. Written in down-to-earth language for children and their families, Money as You Grow will help equip kids with the knowledge they need to live fiscally fit lives. The lessons in Money as You Grow are based on more than a year of research, and drawn from dozens of standards, curricula, and academic studies.
Money as You Grow is an outgrowth of the Council’s Youth Subcommittee, chaired by Amy Rosen
