Cha-Ching! Financial Literacy for Children on Rhode Island PBS

Cha-Ching! Financial Literacy for Children

Rhode Island PBS is pleased to present this series of short videos that teach money concepts so children understand them. Cha-Ching is a financial literacy program that provides a platform for 7 to 12 years old children to learn (with the help of their parents) the knowledge, tools and practice they need to make informed financial decisions to reach their own personal goals and dreams.

The project - begun in Asia - was produced in response to key findings from a major research initiative, which shows that only 13% of parents believe their children possess money management skills - though almost all parents (96%) think it is important to learn them.

Based on comprehensive teachings from children’s education expert, Dr. Alice Wilder, the story lines have been written around the four key and comprehensive concepts of money: Earn, Save, Spend and Donate. 

Children mostly only see the spend side of money, but children also need to understand that Earn, Save, Spend, Donate is a cycle of money, and choices that have to be made every day, throughout life.

Cha-Ching! on Rhode Island PBS is sponsored by Jackson National Life Insurance. Videos air between shows during our children's schedule.
