04/11/2016

Starting on November 5, there will be Kids and Money programs at 4 different branches on Saturday mornings.  The program is geared to help ages 6-12 understand various aspects about money.  We will have fun, interactive things to do and activities aimed at learning about the meaning of money, and more specifically, how it can relate to achieving goals and objectives in your life. Parents are welcome to stay, but may want to take a back seat to the children’s learning. At the end, we can discuss with parents how to be more educative when it comes to money. 

Join us at one of the following sessions.  Registration recommended:

Saturday, November 5, 10 am to 12 pm  Cumberland Branch, 1599 Tenth Line

Saturday, November 12, 10 am - 12 pm, Beaverbrook Branch, 2500 Campeau

Saturday, November 19, 10 am - 12 pm, Sunnyside Branch, 1049 Bank St.

Saturday, November 26, 10 am - 12 pm, Nepean Centrepointe Branch,101 Centrepointe Drive

Presented by Tatyana Burylova and Alysson McCarthy of the Investors Group.

Ideas and tips on how to make and save money, how to start your own business, for kids.

I am writing to encourage you to add more Kids and Money sessions. I didn't discover these until mid-November and would have liked my son to attend one. I think it is a great idea and would enrol my son in a session that was easy to reach by bus. If you are looking for another location to host a session, I would vote for my community library in Blackburn Hamlet. Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, we plan to offer this program next year again during Financial Literacy Month in November.
