Celebrating 20 Years

ABC Quality is South Carolina's voluntary quality improvement system for child care providers caring for young children. It helps child care providers improve the quality of care they provide to children to a level beyond the basics. The first step in helping to ensure that a child care provider meets the basic health and safety needs of children is for the child care program to become licensed. ABC Quality helps child care providers achieve a quality level higher than licensing. There are 5 levels of quality a child care program can earn: A+, A, B+, B, and C. If your child care program voluntarily enrolls in ABC Voucher, ABC also helps eligible families pay for child care services so that the parents can work.

Level   Level A
Can your program measure up?
Level   Level B
Beyond the basics.
Level   Level C
The basics.
