SC First Steps 20th Anniversary VIP Celebration


On June 28, 2019, South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness turned 20 years old! The Honorable James H. Hodges, Governor of South Carolina (1999-2003), established First Steps as a statewide public-private partnership charged with getting South Carolina’s children ready for success in school and life.

Two decades later, as the state’s only dedicated early childhood agency, we continue to lead the charge to ensure South Carolina’s youngest citizens reach their highest potential.

Through the hard work and dedication of everyone who has impacted our agency, we have experienced tremendous growth. We have also achieved noteworthy milestones and collectively touched hundreds of thousands of lives across the state through the children and families we serve, our teachers, childcare providers, employees, and local county partnerships.

We are extremely thankful for everyone who has contributed to the success and strength of this organization and invite you to RSVP for a special 20th anniversary celebration on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.
