Parents As Teachers


Parents are our children’s first – and best – teachers. We work with our families to help them help their children thrive.


Quality Childcare

We work to expand access to and improve existing childcare centers within Dorchester County.


Healthy Start

Knowing early signs that your child may not be developing properly allows us to refer families to those who can help.


Dorchester County First Steps is committed to enhancing, coordinating and expanding programs and services for children birth to five in Dorchester County in South Carolina.
