Members of the Vermont Jump$tart Coalition recently spent several days at the annual Vermont Association for the Education of Young Children Conference in Killington. Jump$tart raffled off prizes, including the three books used for the Treasurer’s Office’s 2017-2018 Reading is an Investment program.
Vermont Jump$tart focuses on ensuring Vermont kids achieve a lifetime of financial well-being. By forging connections with early educators, we hope to open new avenues to educating kids and providing resources to parents.
We were excited to hear of the excellent work early educators are doing around the state. Many expressed enthusiasm about teaching personal finance concepts in the classroom!
