Jonty in labThe Staffordshire University Children’s lab is a research facility where we invite young children and their parents to join us to help us explore this exciting period of development. We specialise in the study of creative development and every visit is valued and we do all we can to make it a fun experience for everyone.


We are currently looking for parents of children aged between 3 and 8 years to complete an online questionnaire. This involves answering questions about their child’s behaviour as well as their child’s preferred TV programmes and apps.  The study takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and there is the opportunity to enter a draw to win one of two £20 Love2Shop Vouchers. For more details please click here.

For details of our recent projects, including preliminary findings please see ‘Previous Projects’ above. We are currently looking for nurseries who would be interested in working with us on some new projects, including developing new measures of creativity suitable for using with young children and examining the impact of feedback on children’s creativity.
