CLIMB, Children Learning the Importance of Money Basics

CLIMB, Children Learning the Importance of Money Basics, is the Florida Department of Financial Services’ financial literacy program for children 10 and under. This online adventure tells the story of Sammie, the Saving Scottie. Through a series of animated videos and books, Sammie learns the basics of money management with topics that include budgeting, saving and the difference between needs and wants. Our goal is to help start the conversation about money basics, while making it fun and engaging for Florida's early learners.
