    CCSD offers Pre-Kindergarten Child Development (CD) programs for students who reside in Charleston County and will be four years old by September 1st, 2024. 

    Pre-K/Child Development Programs are funded through GOF (local), and CERDEP funds (state). They allow the district to provide instruction for eligible students. CCSD's Pre-K/ Child Development programs are designed to develop skills necessary for success in Kindergarten.

    Program: This is a full-day, everyday program that continues throughout the school year.  Regular attendance is needed to remain enrolled in the program.

    *At this time, CCSD does not have universal Pre-K.  Children receive priority points based on application questions and an individualized DIAL-4 screening score.  Children with the most priority points are qualified for Pre-K Child Development during each round. 

    CCSD offers (limited) Pre-K Kindergarten 3K programs for students who reside in Charleston County and are three years old by September 1st, 2024.
