Egg Head Curriculum

Over 80% of young Americans cannot pass a basic financial literacy quiz.*

We are on a mission to give parents the tools they need to raise money smart kids, starting early.

Parents know that the best way to teach children any skill, from languages to instruments, is to start early.

So why do we wait so long to teach them the language and skills associated with good money habits? At My First Nest Egg we have worked with educators and experts to develop a proprietary curriculum which focuses on giving elementary aged kids the knowledge they will need to be successful with money.

*Financial literacy skills have taken a nose dive since the Great Recession – MarketWatch.
