Excellence in Care and Early Learning (ExCEL)

Busy learner hard at playExCEL works with child care providers to enhance the quality of care provided to the children of Richland County. Centers may apply to be part of our Enhancement Team, a year-long program of training, technical assistance, and resources. The Directors’ Team is focused on topics of interest to child care administrators. It is open to child care professionals in both family provider and classroom settings. Special assistance is available for centers seeking to implement Conscious Discipline® or to reach quality milestones like ABC Level A or NAEYC accreditation.

“You have enhanced my awareness in regards to children. You have enhanced their knowledge [children’s] and my knowledge. We are where we are because of you all [ExCEL].”
