The South Carolina Department of Social Services – Child Care Services is the government agency that licenses Day Care / Child Care Centers in the State of South Carolina. Like many other States, South Carolina has licensing requirements that are based on the size, purpose, religious affiliation, and other factors. Regardless of the type of day care center / child care center, each facility and its owners have a duty to provide a safe and healthy environment for the children so as to prevent serious personal injuries while under their care and supervision. Child Care Services has a Child Care Center Locator on its web site that can assist parents and caregivers in researching and finding child care centers throughout South Carolina.
