Learning about money

by

One of the challenges for developing a genuine education for sustainable development in early childhood is to develop a sustainable economics curriculum that is meaningful for young children. ‘Thrift’ was once considered a significant virtue to be encouraged in early childhood education but in recent years it has been neglected.  A new context for developing young children’s economic understanding for sustainable development in England may be provided by a new government initiative: See:

Children to be taught perils of debt

Kids to get lessons about money

Teaching your child about money

Note: the BBC Newsround Programme also provides a number of useful online resources on the environment:

Amazon deforestation
