Tuition Free PreK

4K First Steps program is a state-funded, tuition-free program for 4-year-old children. Applications open January 16th, and 20 spots are currently available at Saint Peter’s for the 2024-25 school year.

First Steps was established in 1999 by the South Carolina General Assembly to close the gap on student’s preparedness for success in school. Since the beginning, we have taken a holistic approach to accomplishing our mission, offering services that improve children’s health, strengthen families, expand access to quality early care and education, and help transition rising kindergartners into school.
