Information for parents, children, sample studies


The kindergarten with a research profile of the Faculty of Education at Leipzig University will be part of the research infrastructure of the Leipzig Research Center for Early Child Development.
The kindergarten program will offer new unique possibilities from a scientific point of view.
Researchers will “zoom“ into the daily life of a kindergarten. The well-known environment, rules/rituals and the presence of familiar people will allow for a new quality of research on children acting independently and their choice of play. Also, interactional and educational processes between children and educators will be objects to scientific observation. The continuous day care and education of the children ages one to six create the preconditions needed for longitudinal studies on cognitive and social development.
The kindergarten with research profile will be officially opened in autumn 2019 as a scientific institution.
