What We do

School Transition

When children are supported in transitions between early childhood settings and from early childhood into kindergarten, they experience less stress and are more likely to thrive in their new environment. First Steps promotes successful transitions by fostering strong relationships and mutual understanding between parents, early educators, and kindergarten teachers.

Countdown to Kindergarten

Developed by South Carolina First Steps in 2003, Countdown to Kindergarten has supported kindergarten transitions and school readiness for more than 17,000 children across the state. Learn more about this nationally recognized program here.
