About First Steps

South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness was created in 1999 by the South Carolina General Assembly for the purpose of having every child in South Carolina arrive at kindergarten ready to learn.

First Steps exists to bring together efforts in early childhood and the state and local level, public and private, to focus and intensify services and assure the most efficient use of all available resources to serve the needs of South Carolina’s young children and their families.

My daughter learned her Abc’s and 123’s at the age of 1 year’s old. Now she is well manner and very independent. She learned a lot from being in the program.

I really love the program and my son does too. He has learned so much from the program and his books. We love the group meetings and everything.
