ZERO TO THREE works to ensure that babies and toddlers benefit from the family and community connections critical to their well-being and development. Healthy connections help build babies’ brains.

Since 1977, ZERO TO THREE has advanced the proven power of nurturing relationships by transforming the science of early childhood into helpful resources, practical tools and responsive policies for millions of parents, professionals and policymakers.

ZERO TO THREE plays a key role in ensuring that babies and toddlers get a strong start in life by supporting:

  • parents with practical resources that help them connect more positively, deeply and continuously with their babies
  • professionals with knowledge and tools that help them support healthy early development
  • policymakers in advancing comprehensive and coherent policies which support and strengthen families, caregivers and infant toddler professionals

Goals of this collaboration include co-creating media to raise awareness around issues of early childhood and facilitating teams of volunteer professionals focused on early childhood to serve in communities globally.
