The University of Arkansas, in partnership with ZERO TO THREE, is pleased to offer the ZERO TO THREE Critical Competencies for Infant‐Toddler Educators™ training series. This unique, 15-part series provides opportunities for infant-toddler educators to explore, understand, and practice critical interactions with infants and toddlers that support and nurture their social-emotional, cognitive, and language and literacy development and learning. The series is designed to support educators who work in group settings with infants and/or toddlers, and includes considerations for supporting high-needs populations and multi-language learners.

ZERO TO THREE: National Center for Infants, Toddlers and Families is based on the philosophy of helping child care providers promote positive parenting and healthy social-emotional development in children by implementing protective factors into early childhood programs.
