The Abdimas Team of UNIPMA Accounting Education Study Program, Provides Early Financial Literacy Education through Dongkrek Madiun Arts
Planting financial literacy as early as possible affects the understanding and knowledge of financial literacy that can be applied later in life, namely children can manage finances and later can live independently. However, the role of family and school is very supportive for children to master financial literacy skills.
In this case, learning that is creative, innovative, interesting, and fun to be easily accepted by students is needed in teaching and learning activities that form the basis for UNIPMA Accounting Education Study Program Students to carry out Community Service BP3K MBKM (Merdeka Belajar-Kampus Merdeka) at Cendekia Kids PAUD Madiun City School in 2021, entitled "Early FINANCIAL LITERACY EDUCATION THROUGH DONGKREK MADIUN ARTS AT CENDEKIA KIDS SCHOOL IN MADIUN CITY".
