Learning good saving habits from a young age can make a big difference in a person’s ability to be financially stable later on in life. To help, there is an annual campaign each spring called “teach children to save day.” This year, it is on April 24th.
On or around that day, all bankers, teachers and parents are invited to do their part in educating local children by using resources found at teachchildrentosave.com. There are lots of articles with great family-oriented tips, as well as the “money talks” newsletter, written specifically for youngsters, that features fun puzzles and worksheets.
Parents can also bring their little ones to a local BankFive branch to open a free nickels savings account so their children can watch their savings grow in their very own savings passbook.
