The families and fate of South Carolina rely on child care. Two-thirds of children live in homes where all caregivers work. Nearly half of state residents live in child care deserts with no providers or scarce options. A continued failure to address this crucial need affects more than families. We all lose.
ABC Quality was created in 1992 to help address the state’s ever-growing gaps in child care quality, access and affordability. Since then, we’ve worked with providers to strengthen and grow programs. We’ve collaborated with partners to build a statewide ecosystem of resources that benefit children and families. We’re moving in the right direction with miles to go.
