**SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT**

At ZERO TO THREE, the health and safety of our early childhood professional community, including our faculty, is paramount. ZERO TO THREE has decided, out of an abundance of caution, to temporarily suspend travel for our faculty and discourage the social convening of individuals through in-person training to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As needed, in-person training events are being rescheduled or conducted virtually through synchronous online learning. For more information regarding an upcoming event, please revisit this site for updates, or reach out to us at professionaldevelopment@zerotothree.org. Thank you for your cooperation during this unprecedented global event.
