SC Summit on Early Childhood - SC First Steps

SC Summit on Early Childhood

The state’s premiere Early Childhood conference is presented annually by South Carolina First Steps and the Early Childhood Advisory Council.

Registration is free.


Since 2015, the SC Summit on Early Childhood has provided early childhood professionals and advocates, parents, members of the business community, and elected officials an open platform to share strategies, research, and dialogue in order to foster a strong foundation for the children of South Carolina.

In 2021, the SC Summit on Early Childhood is going virtual. With “From the Start” as our theme, keynote speakers and breakout sessions will focus on the earliest years of childhood, from prenatal to age three. All events, including networking opportunities and an interactive expo hall, will be presented virtually December 2-3, 2021. View the full schedule here.
