We believe that it’s never too early to start learning about financial literacy.
That’s why we’re bringing you this innovative workshop that will teach your kids the value of money, the concept of saving, earning, banks and so much more.
Finally, your kids will understand that money does not grow on trees and the plastic card that mommy and daddy uses to buy things is not magic!

This workshop is designed as a learning experience for both kids and their parents. There will be hands-on activities and even role-playing games that will surely help your child become more financially prepared for the future.
