SC-ELS Standards

In 2013, the South Carolina State Child Care Administrator’s Office at the Division of Early Care and Education in the SC Department of Social Services (SCDSS) authorized and funded the revision of the Infant-Toddler Guidelines and the Good Start, Grow Smart Early Learning Standards. That effort led to the creation of the South Carolina Early Learning Standards (SC- ELS)—a single document that describes children’s development and learning from birth to age five.  Please see the attached link for a copy.
