As an integral component of the University community, the Early Childhood Care and Education Services has been the site of many on-going learning and research opportunities. Students from the Departments of Education and Psychology have used this site to conduct observations, interviews and experiments to further their research. Research projects are considered on a case by case basis and may require a meeting with a program coordinator, a complete write up of the proposed activity, and individual permission slips to be sign by each family. It will be the responsibility of the researcher to fit the activity into the child’s existing routine.
If you are interested in learning more about research opportunities at the Children’s Centers, please contact the Program Coordinators at (805) 893-4904.
