We connect families with South Carolina's public services for young children.
Quality care and early learning give babies, toddlers, and young children their best start—and help parents work and manage their busy lives, too.
From regular doctor checkups to using safe cribs and car seats, families can improve the well-being of children at every stage.
Every child develops differently. Some babies walk early. Some toddlers speak later. How do you know when a child needs extra help? And what can you do?
Good nutrition supports growing minds and bodies. Sometimes, families need help to provide food and make healthy meals for kids.
Whether learning to care for a new baby, parenting a toddler or covering the cost of raising a child, the first 5 years are a time when most families can use extra help.
