Launches Financial Literacy Curriculum For Schools
MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leaping Harts, Inc., the parent company of Kiddie Kredit, a preteen product aimed at teaching kids about credit, has partnered with STEM Fuse to make Kiddie Kredit’s courses on financial literacy, in particular credit, available to STEM Fuse’s platform of over 15,000 schools.
Carter Tatge, CEO of STEM Fuse, comments, “STEM Fuse is excited to work with Kiddie Kredit to bring their unique and innovative financial literacy content to a broad range of schools across the country. We anticipate that this partnership will substantially advance financial literacy in young people.”
“This is an amazing opportunity for Kiddie Kredit. The content we designed meets multiple national financial literacy standards and was originally designed solely to exist within our app. We soon realized that while the content can be digested at home, it would be a disservice to youth and to our mission, to not bring this content into a school setting as well,” says Mike Gross, Head of Education & COO at Kiddie Kredit.
The partnership allows for multiple schools to have access to educational content. With the recent passing of mandatory financial literacy education in Florida schools, select classrooms in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools system have already signed on.
Carlos Vazquez, Founding President & CEO of Miami EdTech, states, “As part of Miami EdTech’s efforts to leverage technology to address the systemic challenges students face, the Kiddie Kredit and STEM Fuse partnership provides an opportunity to exponentially impact the financial literacy knowledge gap. Building on the momentum surrounding computer science access and accessibility, students and teachers will be exposed to a curriculum that ensures equitable access to financial literacy.”
