CUNA Intro's Money Program For Preschool
CUNA has introduced free resources to teach basic money concepts to preschoolers. The program, "Thrive by Five: Teaching Your Preschooler about Spending and Saving," provides parents a way to teach money values to their children, CUNA said. Parents can download eight modules: waiting to spend money; not losing money; helping with shopping; earning money; using money to buy something; once money is spent, it is gone; having fun doesn't mean spending money; and gifts that don't cost money. "Thrive by Five" supplements the teaching activities with tips for teaching preschoolers and a list of age-appropriate storybooks about money. The project was made possible by a $15,000 grant from the National Credit Union Foundation and additional funds from the Ohio and Texas credit union foundations.
