Money Isn’t Childs Play

"We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs."
~Gloria Steinem

Since April is now officially Financial Literacy Month, we so excited and wondering if this is going to open up yet another area of curriculum of us to really delve into? Do we really do enough with our children regarding the fundamentals of money and finances? Do we know enough ourselves?
In the preschool environment inflation has hit our,‘Grocery Store’. Apples are the correct 2010 prices. The children have seen what real money and coins look like, and change is given back. Why?
It’s all part of a process.
 When preschoolers have opportunities to act out events that grown ups do every day, they begin to make sense of their world through play.
