What’s our kaupapa?
Ngā Kaitiaki Moni means ‘the Money Guardians’ which reflects the aim for this initiative – tamariki taking ownership of and engaging in financial learning. This is an important kaupapa, as by age seven most tamariki grasp the value of money and understand that money can be earned, saved, and spent. It is important to introduce your tamariki to these concepts as early as possible to give them the best chance of developing strong financial confidence as they grow older.
Through fun resources, tamariki will learn about and practise with money, saving and helping whānau around the home. This will help develop their financial capability and long-term goal setting and enable them to engage in kōrero about money with whānau. And it’s free if you’re a Whai Rawa member!
