Founded in 1977 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., ZERO TO THREE  promotes the health and development of infants and toddlers with the goal of enhancing their early social-emotional development.   It translates research and knowledge – specifically information about the kinds of early experiences that help children thrive – into a range of practical tools and resources for use by the adults who influence the lives of children.  This is done through training professionals and building networks of leaders, influencing policies and practices, and raising awareness of early childhood issues.
