The Institute for Child Success is a research and policy organization that fosters public and private partnerships to align and improve resources for the success of young children in South Carolina.

The Institute's approach focuses on helping those who help children succeed.

ICS recognizes that the most effective way to improve the success of children isn't one child at a time - but by improving the SYSTEMS that foster the health and education of our children.

ICS supports service providers and advocates focused on early childhood development, healthcare, and education - all to coordinate, enhance, and improve those efforts for the maximum effect in the lives of young people.
