About the Lab

Come visit the Child’s Play, Learning and Development Lab! Directed by Dr. Roberta Golinkoff, the Child’s Play Lab (formerly the Infant Language Project) has been in existence for over 40 years. We study how children take on the astounding feats of developing language, understanding spatial relationships, and learning through play. We invite families and children to participate in our research by visiting our lab and engaging in fun, child-friendly activities with our trained researchers.

Your participation in our research helps inform the field of Child Development. We write articles for scientific journals about our research and give talks all over the world!
