The 2017 Early Childhood Common Agenda for South Carolina reflects months of work from a coalition of experts and offers specific recommendations to build a smart, comprehensive early childhood system for children 0-5 years old. A central recommendation of the 2017 agenda is to empower parents with the knowledge of positive parenting practices and resources by expanding voluntary home visiting programs supporting children from prenatal to age five.
Three statewide organizations – Children’s Trust of South Carolina, the Institute for Child Success and United Way Association of South Carolina – along with statewide partners have been working on the Early Childhood Common Agenda. It is a policy road map for South Carolina to create a brighter future for young children and their families.
