We are dedicated to providing our students with a strong educational foundation, that will prepare them for the next level of academic advancement. We offer programs from ages 6 weeks to 13 years of age. Here is a list of programs offered at HPCDC.
Early Head Start Program
(6:30 am - 6:30 pm)
We have partnered with the Charleston County First Steps Early Head Start Program (EHS) to provide services to children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old. The Early Head Start Program provides participants with well-rounded support and a high level of care and education. A Family Services Coordinator helps parents and families identify resources and supports. Participants have weekly visits and monthly group meetings. Creative Curriculum is used for daily instruction.
(8:00 am - 12:00 noon)
Our preschool program is offered to children ages 3 to 5 years old. Our goal is to prepare these students to enter kindergarten at or above grade level. The preschool program incorporates a spiritual foundation along with a high level of academic learning. It is important for us to build little citizens with stellar character traits. HighScope Curriculum is used with our preschoolers. This curriculum incorporates Math, Science, Phonetics, Reading, Writing, and Creative Arts. STEM activities are also implemented within the program.
After School Enrichment Program
(2:30 pm - 6:30 pm)
Our after school program is offered to school-aged children up to the 8th grade. The program is an enrichment program that focuses on building students' social, emotional and academic skills. Students are assessed to determine subjects where after school coaches can better assist the students. A typical afternoon begins with a nutritional snack, completion of homework assignments, and then individual academically focused areas. Students are also able to participate in various centers and physical activities. Transportation is available from some schools in the North Charleston area to the center. Call for more information.
