Partners

USC Foundation
The USC Development Foundation owns the property, valued at $550,000 at the southwest corner of Wheat and South Pickens streets. The foundation has played a key role in assembling the partners to make the center a reality.
 
USC
University of South Carolina students from education, nursing, public health, psychology, social work, art, music, medicine and School of Library and Information Science in the College of Mass Communications and Information Studies will be involved with the center as part of their educational experience, and USC employees and students will have access to first-rate childcare. USC faculty also will have access to the center for research and observation.
 
SC DSS (ABC Child Care Program)
The S. C. Department of Social Services (formerly the S.C. Department of Health and Human Services) is the lead child care agency for South Carolina and partners with a large group of providers and agencies statewide to accomplish its mission. SC DHHS provided support for the design and equipping of the center's rooms and playground according to WestEd, SC DHHS, Head Start, and S.C. Department of Education guidelines. SC DSS now uses the center as a training site and statewide model for quality early care and education.
 
SDE
The SC Department of Education (SDE) contributes to the Center by supporting the goal of creating a model early childhood and family literacy program that may be viewed by local practitioners here in our state and across the nation as they incorporate practices which will lead to NAEYC accreditation and national High/Scope accreditation.
 
ETV
When the Center opened ETV brought the technical resources of education television, its extensive digital satellite network for use in distance education, and its wealth of experience in producing "best practices" video training and distance learning resources for early care and education. This partnership also provided both children and staff of SCTV's The Children's Place the opportunity to join the project.
 
Schuyler and Yvonne Moore Family Foundation
The Moores are passionate advocates for children. Without their generous support, this project could not have happened. All of the partners are indebted to Sky and Yvonne Moore for their visionary leadership and for working with us to make this project a reality.
