From implementation to impact: An evaluation of the South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness program

A multi-component evaluation of South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness, a comprehensive state initiative aimed at improving early childhood development, that examined: the features and quality of First Steps-funded four-year-old kindergarten (4K) classrooms, and the characteristics and outcomes of 4K participants; families receiving child care vouchers through First Steps and the features and quality improvements of child care programs receiving First Steps funding for quality enhancement activities; outcomes of children whose parents participated in First Steps parenting and family strengthening activities; and the value added by channeling funding through First Steps offices rather than directly through agencies implementing First Steps programming
