The ZERO TO THREE Membership experience is full of benefits designed to elevate the professional competencies of the early childhood workforce and enhance early childhood professional development.

We started membership four years ago to give early childhood professionals access to the latest research, cutting-edge professional development, and a community of early childhood professionals. Here are the top 5 member benefits you’ll get by joining ZERO TO THREE.

1. Free Virtual Events

We’ve hosted dozens of live Virtual Events for early childhood professionals, and you can count on many more over the next year. Our Virtual Event Calendar is updated regularly as new events are scheduled. Members get exclusive free access to all Virtual Events, and they can access recordings of previously held events in our Archives. Learn from subject matter experts from across the infant and early childhood field in the comfort of your home or office. Attendees also earn CEUs toward early childhood professional development.

2. Access to Member Connect

Member Connect is more than just a social platform for our members. It’s a forum for early childhood professionals to ask questions, seek help, and to learn from one another. Our multi-disciplinary community connects early childcare providers with specialized experts in multiple fields.

3. ZERO TO THREE Member-Only Content

Founded in 1980, the ZERO TO THREE Journal was a quarterly publication sharing important research, practice, and professional development. Members have access to the full digital archive of the journal. That’s more than 48 issues of timeless insights, best practices, and research, all ready to read on your mobile device or downloaded and printed. In addition, our team publishes ongoing content just for ZERO TO THREE Members. Curious about what to expect?

4. ZERO TO THREE Conference Discount

Each year, thousands of early childhood professionals come to the ZERO TO THREE LEARN Conference, and our members can reserve their spot with an exclusive discounted rate. This year, thousands of professionals will join us to Be Great virtually. With more than 32 learning sessions to choose from, our conference attendees leave with specialized skills and resources they can immediately put into practice back home.
