While all childcare providers must follow a mandatory curriculum as required by CSC and the School Board, ASP goes further with unique specialized programs designed to provide children with the life skills they need to succeed in today’s complex world.
Junior Achievement Programs
Junior Achievement educates and inspires young people to value free enterprise, business and economics to improve the quality of their lives.
ASP is the only private afterschool childcare provider in South Florida affiliated with Junior Achievement. Junior Achievement uses hands-on experiences to help young people learn about business, economics and free enterprise to improve the quality of their lives.
Our exclusive partnership with this prestigious organization allows the children in our care the opportunity to experience the real world and understand the economics of life, opening their minds to their potential.
Junior Achievement will ensure that every child in America has a fundamental understanding of the free enterprise system.
