We’re Empowering South Carolinans to Be the Voice for Kids

 South Carolinans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Take Action in South Carolina

Fund Early Childhood Education Programs

Urge Congress to Support Funding for Head Start

Tragically, millions of children living in poverty are eligible for Head Start but miss out on vital programming because they cannot access or afford it. Please ask your members of Congress to support funding for Head Start and Early Head Start so more kids can thrive!

State Polling Results

SCAN commissioned a bipartisan polling team to conduct survey research among general election voters
in five states to gauge their opinions about early childhood education and early intervention policies.

In addition to general election voters, SCAN conducted interviews among both Democratic and Republican primary voters.
The results showed that legislators and candidates looking for issues with broad appeal that can meaningfully
improve the lives of their constituents should invest in our youngest learners and early intervention programs. 

See what  South Carolina voters have to say about early childhood education.
