The Charles Webb Center is a developmental day care operated by the Disabilities Board of Charleston County, serving children with special needs from age 6 weeks to 10 years old. The mission of Charles Webb is to aid in each child’s growth and development through an educational program, to develop each child’s sense of self-esteem, and to strengthen each child’s social, language and preschool skills.
The Webb Center’s program is aimed at maximizing each child’s potential and preparing the child for successful integration into the school system, through a child- centered curriculum based on developmentally appropriate practices. With a staff ratio of 1:5, and collaboration with speech, occupational, and physical therapists, early interventionists and service coordinators, children are able to receive the individualized attention needed to address cognitive and social development, fine and gross motor skills, and self-help skills.
There are four classrooms in the Center, a sensory integration room sponsored by the Coastal Community Foundation, a large sunny playground with adaptive equipment that can accommodate children with physical disabilities, and a nurse’s station. Space is available for therapists to work with children individually at the school. Special field trips, parties and activities keep the Center a fun place for children, while providing enrichment opportunities.
The Webb Center is licensed by the SC Child Care Licensing Services and the Department of Health and Environmental Control. The Center provides a USDA recommended breakfast, lunch and snack daily, parent resources, experienced staff certified in Child CPR and first aid, and ABC - certified classroom teachers. All staff members must undergo rigorous state and federal background checks, and complete over 50 hours of initial training, before employment.
