The Crippling Problem We Aim To Fix
Around the world, more and more young adults have accumulated huge debts before the age of 28. The captivating lure of consumerism and the desire to own things that represent status has driven many youths into spending more than they have.
These, along with the serious lack of financial education, eventually leads to a lifetime of financial struggles and in some cases, bankruptcy.
When it comes to your child’s future, prevention is better than cure.
At MoneyTree, we have the solution you need to prevent your children from joining that statistic.

Vision And Mission
MONEYTREE was established to provide a solution to address the financial literacy gap. Through our MONEYTREE ACADEMIES, we provide programmes and courses that will help your child:
INCREASE FINANCIAL KNOWLEDGE
Knowledge is a pre-requisite to success. If we want our children to grow up to be financially stable or successful, we must first help them build up their financial knowledge.
In MONEYTREE, our syllabus are designed to help enhance your child’s understanding on a wide range of financial concepts (covering economics, finance and business) as well as day-to-day life related topics. We believe that by exposing your child to these knowledge, it will help generate awareness on the need for them to learn about money and more importantly, help prepare them for a sound financial future!
BUILD POSITIVE FINANCIAL HABITUDES
This is especially important as good money habits and attitudes, developed early in their lives, will often have a lasting positive impact into their adulthood. Along with increasing their financial knowledge, our programmes are also designed to help your child build “the right money mindset” and develop positive money habits.
Some of the noticeable habits you will observe in your child include: Save before spending, Check & compare prices before making purchases, etc….
PEER & SOCIAL PRESSURE DEFENCE
There is enough evidence to show how negative peer influence often cause people to make poor decisions in life, some of which result in serious financial repercussion. Hence, building our children’s defence against negative peer influence is key towards securing their financial future. This is perhaps the most important aspect that MONEYTREE programmes help tackle.
At MONEYTREE ACADEMIES, our classes provide a platform for your child to interact with like-minded students and compete in a positive environment.
Through these interactions, we are able to progressively build your child’s peer pressure defence as students provide positive influence for each other!
In short, our programmes provide the platform for your child to improve their financial knowledge, sharpen their financial habitudes and build up their defence against negative peer influence, putting them on the right track towards attaining a sound financial future!
Creating Motivated Learners
The key to effective learning lies in our ability to motivate our students. This is precisely how the MoneyTree programmes are structured. We have a system that ensures students stay motivated throughout the course. Here’s how it works… MoneyTree dollars are given to students and are used to represent money in the real world. Apart from serving as a useful tool in helping students develop understanding of the function of money, MoneyTree dollars are used to allow students to make “purchases” in the class through the MoneyTree Auctions. In other words, students are able to use MoneyTree dollars to bid for prizes like movie tickets, toys and even gadgets (like Playstation, Tablets, etc…).
Because of this system, our students are highly motivated in class and respond positively to learning and activities in class. Because of this system, our students are highly motivated in class and respond positively to learning and activities in class.
