Financial literacy, a subject often overlooked in traditional school curriculums, is an essential life skill. We believe every child has the right to understand money - how to earn it, save it, spend it, and invest it wisely. At Pure Minds Academy, we've developed an innovative 5-day program to teach financial literacy to children aged between 10 and 14: "The Journey to Financial Independence."
What Is the Journey to Financial Independence Program?
Our program takes a unique, immersive approach to financial education, placing students into realistic, age-appropriate scenarios and tasks. These range from budgeting for university to understanding investments and mortgages. Over five days, your child will grapple with real-life financial decisions in a safe, nurturing, and exciting learning environment.
A Journey Through Key Life Stages
DAY 1: Day one throws our young learners into the realm of university life. They're introduced to essential financial terms and then quickly apply their knowledge in a simulation game, "University Life." By understanding the potential costs of moving away for university, they learn about budgeting, student loans, and even credit cards.
DAY 2: The second day explores the world of work, explaining types of jobs, income, taxes, and the critical art of budgeting. Through the interactive workshop "My First Paycheck," children discover how to manage their income effectively, balancing needs and wants.
DAY 3: Day three delves into understanding credit and the financial responsibilities of owning a car. Our "New Car Challenge" makes these concepts fun and exciting, ensuring learning is memorable.
Day 4: On day four, students dive into the world of investments - stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds, and even cryptocurrency. Our "Investment Game" lets them invest pretend money, teaching them about risk, reward, and the basics of financial markets.
Day 5: Finally, day five explores the concept of home ownership and mortgages. Our "Dream House" simulation brings to life the pros and cons of renting versus buying and the intricacies of mortgages, including the deposit, monthly payments, and other costs.
Why Should You Enroll Your Child?
The Journey to Financial Independence is an investment in your child's future. It equips them with practical knowledge that will help them make informed financial decisions throughout their life. We believe that when children learn these skills early, they are set on a path to financial security, independence, and economic understanding.
Financial literacy is empowering - it can reduce future debt, increase saving, and contribute to overall financial health. Don't let your child step into the world of personal finance unprepared. Help them understand money today so they can build a strong financial future.
