The 2017 ZERO TO THREE Annual Conference will be held November 29 through December 1 in San Diego, California.

View the complete conference schedule.

The first ZERO TO THREE conference was held in 1985 as the National Training Institute. Since its launch, this world-class event has helped connect and educate more than 45,000 childhood professionals from across the U.S. and around the world. Those who helped create the conference more than 30 years ago had no idea how important it would become or how much it would grow.

That idea was twofold and still persists today – making sure all babies get a strong start in life, and providing early childhood professionals with the resources and training they need to serve families at the highest level. That’s the inspiration behind and the ongoing mission of our Annual Conference.

“If we threw a party, would anybody come? That was the concern,” said Kyle Pruett, M.D., one of ZERO TO THREE’s founders, describing a concern that was raised as the organization began discussing the creation of the first conference.

“I’d never found before a home like this,” said Sam Meisels, Ph.D., another of ZERO TO THREE’s founders, describing both the organization and the conference. “These people were passionate; they were selfless; they were not going to ever give up. They had an idea. They were going to fight to the end for the idea.”
