Developmental researchers work closely with the Psychology Department preschool playgroup (3-4yr olds) and parent-toddler group (newborn-3yr olds). Access to these groups is invaluable for both researchers and students of developmental psychology. The playgroup offers excellent facilities, with video-monitored testing rooms and a one-way viewing cubicle. All our developmental researchers have strong links with local schools for working with pupils of both primary and secondary school age. This includes both mainstream and special needs schooling.
