RBC's Learning Money With Leo iPad App

While Braden is only 2 years old, I really do believe that it's important to start teaching him about money at a young age. RBC Royal Bank believes that it’s so important to build a solid foundation of money concepts for your child to build on. We started an RESP for Braden right after he was born and we want to teach him the importance of saving his money. Braden also has 2 piggy banks, one for his loonies & one for his twonies!

A fun way to teach your young children about money is with RBC's a new iPad app Learning Money With Leo. It is aimed help kids under 6 with the development of basic money skills and will ensure that they can build upon these essential life-skills for years to come. Plus, it’s a lot of fun, so it’ll also keep them entertained when you most need it!
While Braden really only enjoyed the coloring pages, I can see how this app will be very useful to him when he gets older. I showed it to my nephew Luke who is almost 4 and I was amazed at how quickly he learned about the different coin denominations. He really loved the Gather the Coins game!
