This program has been divided into two parts, financial education and entrepreneurship, for children aged 7 to 10, taking into account the cognitive development and skills developed
In this part of the PROGRAM, we focus on providing children with a solid, basic understanding of essential financial concepts. Children learn about money, its different forms (coins and bills), counting and sorting, and the difference between needs and wants. They are also oriented towards the concept of saving money, setting short-term goals and learning to make prudent financial decisions.
In the second part of the program, we turn our attention to entrepreneurship, encouraging children to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. They learn about what it's like to be an entrepreneur and how to generate creative ideas. We explore the importance of planning a business, identifying a target audience, developing a basic business plan and creating simple marketing strategies. Children are also encouraged to think of ways to solve problems and meet customer needs through their business.
By dividing the book in this way, we allow the children to absorb the concepts gradually, according to their capacity for comprehension and cognitive development. The financial education section lays a solid foundation for children to understand the value of money and to learn to manage it and make informed financial choices. The entrepreneurship section, then, expands the children's horizon, encouraging their creativity, problem-solving skills and entrepreneurial thinking.
Many people think that entrepreneurship is an adult business, but that's not entirely true. Entrepreneurship for children started to gain visibility for presenting benefits when it comes to stimulating new skills in the little ones.
Developing the ability to be an entrepreneur is increasingly necessary in the world we live in. We know that a responsible and resolute professional stands out in companies, and this is one of the main reasons for you to invest in your children's learning process.
To stimulate this entrepreneurial profile in children, it is necessary to keep in mind some key skills such as creativity, autonomy, analysis, commitment and proactivity.
Unsurprisingly, children have very fertile imaginations, but this may be the factor that will generate incredible opportunities for them.
When learning the pillars of entrepreneurship and financial literacy, the kids are encouraged to bet on their ideas and they try to execute them somehow.
This stimulus makes them identify what is possible to do or not in a given situation and over time, as they put their imagination to the test, they become more and more confident.
