Welcome to Parenting Resources at ZERO TO THREE.  Here you’ll find science-based information and tools designed to help parents and caregivers nurture their young children’s development.

ZERO TO THREE’s approach to parent education is based on the belief that parents are the true experts on their children, and that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to raising children. The information and tools we offer are designed to support parents in developing their own ways to promote their children’s growth and development. The foundation of this approach is helping parents:

  • Be aware of what they bring to parenting—the beliefs, values and goals they have for their children, and their own personal style and approach to child-rearing;
  • Tune in to who their individual child is—his temperament, strengths, needs, and development; and
  • Apply this knowledge to their everyday parenting decisions.

We apologize, but the selected Survey is currently unavailable.

Please note that we are unable to respond to individual questions about children's development.  We encourage you to talk with your child's health care provider or other trusted early childhood professional to address your specific concerns.
