Meet Seb - He is five years old, and like all young children he wants the latest toys and must-haves. Rather than buying these for him, we want him to understand that there are financial considerations. It’s important Seb learns there are ways to get the things that you want, and the things that you need. This is our challenge, intentionally using the amazing creativity, passion and resourcefulness that children possess.
The App – Seb and Mum plan a Savings Goal. Seb takes a photo of what he’s to save for, and then Mum thinks about what Seb can do to earn his Goal. The activities are engaging, fun and full of learning opportunities. Tasks are scheduled in his Star Bank, and Seb is away! He’s motivated, happily completing his tasks and earning his Gold Stars! He’ll have his new bike before he knows it, having learnt a bagful of new skills to boot.
The Website - Kids’ minds do wander now and again, and Seb needs a little re-motivating every so often. That’s very normal, and Mum can use the Goldstar Savings Bank website to find the tools to put Seb back on track. The Academy has lots of resources, ranging from fun worksheets and certificates to well-researched articles to support parents in their mission to educate their children.
