Examples of licensing complaints:

  • Someone is keeping children without a license or registration
  • A provider has more children in a room than the staff-to-child ratio allows
  • Playground equipment is in unsafe condition
  • A provider has hired someone without getting a background check

 Examples of ABC Quality complaints:

  • A provider is not providing appropriate activities
  • A provider is not following good handwashing practices
  • A provider is not talking to children appropriately

Child Care Licensing will not investigate complaints about a provider’s rates. 

Reporting Child Abuse

To report suspected child abuse and neglect in a child care facility, please call the statewide, 24/7 abuse/neglect hotline number for reporting at 1-888-CARE-4-US (1-888-227-3487). Non-emergency reports of abuse or neglect can be made via the SCDSS webpage at www.dss.sc.gov.

Reviewing a Provider’s Status

All licensing deficiencies are posted on the provider’s page if they are regulated by DSS. You can use the search for Child Care Providers by the child care provider’s name to see any deficiencies they might have.
