Little Kids, Big Questions
is a series of 12 podcasts that translates the research of early childhood development into parenting practices that mothers, fathers and other caregivers can tailor to the needs of their own child and family. Click here to listen to or download the podcasts. This podcast series is generously funded by MetLife Foundation.

1. I am interested in a training you offer. How can I get this training at my organization or agency?

2. What are the costs for your trainings?

3. If trainers in my organization have been trained by Center for Training Services, does my organization have to pay ZERO TO THREE a fee when we implement that training?

4. Will I receive CEU's from trainings given by the Center for Training Services?

5. How can I receive more detailed information about your trainings?

6. Are your trainings available online?

7. How frequently do you schedule your trainings?

8. How can I become a trainer? I think I might put this question toward the end. 

9. What do you offer for experienced trainers?


1. Use our contact form, and we will get back to you to discuss your goals for the training, offer suggestions to help facilitate transfer of learning to practice, and answer questions about costs, materials, trainers, location and other logistics.

2. Costs for training packages vary depending upon length of training and group size, and materials required.   The current rate (subject to change) for existing one-day workshops is $2,400 a day per trainer, plus travel expenses and any required materials.  The current rate (subject to change) for DC:0-3R training is $2,400/trainer, plus travel costs and purchase of the DC:0-3R manual, which can be purchased in our eStore

3. At this time we do not charge a fee to trainers that we have trained when they then implement the training.

4. We provide CEUs for some of our trainings. Cost is $25 per person.

5. Our trainings are not available online at this time.

6. Detailed information about our training is available here.

7. Most of our training is arranged through state and local organizations. 

8. One resource for those who wish to become trainers is the American Society for Training and Development.  This membership organization offers resources, training, and online discussion boards for trainers and those interested in becoming trainers.

Some of the ways that people learn to be trainers include: 
  • Working along with an experienced trainer, and getting coaching and feedback from that person. 
  • Checking with local nonprofits, community colleges, or universities to see if they offer workshops or adult education courses on "Training for Trainers." 
  • Taking college or university courses on adult education.
  • Contacting organizations you are interested in to see if they train trainers to work for them.
  • Reading books for trainers, available through libraries or online and brick-and-mortar bookstores.

9. ZERO TO THREE offers advanced training for trainers workshops.  See the information on Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect, Building Collaborative Relationships with Families, and Cradling Literacy
