Welcome to the Center for Early Childhood Research at the University of Chicago!  We conduct cutting edge research exploring the development of cognition, action, and perception during infancy and childhood. Our research focuses on space, number, language, social understanding, empathy, and moral reasoning.  You can read more about our current projects on our  Research page.

BabyOur work is made possible by the support and participation of our parents and their children. If you would like to participate in our studies, please read through the information on this website and register your child. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Center for Early Childhood Research!
