In South Carolina, 2,003 children under the age of three are enrolled in Early Head Start programs, and 7,079 3-year olds and 6,330 4-year olds are enrolled in Head Start programs. South Carolina’s statewide early childhood programs serve 40 percent of 4-year olds and 4 percent of 3-year olds in the state, with a distinct focus on low-income children and families through the Half-Day Child Development Program (4K) and the Child Development Education Pilot Program. The state also funds an Early Childhood Assistance Program (ECAP) that primarily focuses on children in kindergarten, also allowing districts to use a portion of the funds to supplement pre-K spending. In addition, First Steps to School Readiness, a separate initiative, connects and provides some financing for public and private preschool initiatives. According to a recent poll commissioned by the S.C. Institute for Child Success, 69 percent of South Carolina voters support the state’s expansion of free, full-day pre-K for 4-year-olds. Meanwhile, more than half of voters say children in the state are not prepared to enter kindergarten. The average annual cost of center-based infant care in the state is $6,280.
