Welcome to the South Carolina First Steps KITS Project website.


Update (2/28/23):
We have made a lot of progress over the past 6 months! Migration needs from the related data systems that First Steps currently uses have been identified, and several KITS modules have been developed and tested.

  • User Dashboard: This module provides features for the overview dashboard, including alerts/notifications and pending/completed task items.
  • System Administration (sample screen shown below): This module provides features that allow KITS system administrators to manage user accounts, roles/permissions, lookup values, and other issues managed by highly privileged users.
  • Organizations, Program Staff, and Workforce: This module provides system administrative features required to add, review, edit, and manage First Steps organization and workforce records.

System Development (7/15/22):
The KITS database has been configured and legacy data migration analysis is underway. Development has also begun on the Program Administration modules, with the first round of testing expected to begin in early August.

System Design (6/15/22):
Requirements gathering needed to configure the backend KITS database has been completed.

SC First Steps KITS

KITS (Knowledge, Information, and Teaming System) is an online program and case management system designed to support the implementation and monitoring of South Carolina First Steps local partnership and 4K programs. KITS will be used by teams of state staff, local program administrators, practitioners, and families to address a variety of program and case data management needs.

Meet the Team

The AnLar team focus will be on building SC First Steps KITS as a customized and easy-to-use IT System around South Carolina’s First Steps processes (rather than forcing teams into a prefabricated system). This approach is possible because of our experienced IT developers, content experts, and project management staff that have significant experience with building customized solutions for public agencies and private industry. From project management and IT design to knowledge of program requirements, from coding and testing to maintenance and training, our AnLar team will support all aspects of the SC First Steps KITS project.
