Welcome to The Child Lab at Yale University!

We are a group of researchers who study child development with fun activities where children answer questions about pictures and videos. By asking our questions to hundreds of children, we can learn how children understand the world, and how teachers and parents can best teach children about the world. For 20 years, we have worked with families at our Yale University lab and nearby schools and museums. Now, we are using video chat to bring our studies directly to families everywhere.
