Our Infant Learning Lab is located at Early Start at the University of Wollongong.
What does a visit to our lab typically look like?
We may ask parents to record their babies movements at home, things like tummy time and rolling!
Little one will get to explore a new space, and we'll observe all the exciting things they get up to
Babies can also be chatty, so we will audio-record some of their babbles and goo-gas
After all their talking and exploring, we'll then want to see how their little brains remember tasks
We're also interested in what it's like to read with your baby, especially as they get increasingly mobile

This is where we will complete tasks with you and your little one.
To see how your baby is moving, we may ask you to video your child doing certain movements at home - things like tummy time and rolling, depending on how old they are.
To see how babies learn, we will demonstrate a task using a toy, then see if your baby can remember the task later.
We'll put this funky monkey vest on your baby at the start of the lab visit. During the exploration task, we'll place a LENA recording device in the front pocket, so we can audio record any baby chatter.
To see how babies explore a new environment, we will observe what your baby gets up to in the lab.
We are interested in when and how parents and carers start reading to their little ones, and what happens as little one becomes increasingly mobile and no longer wants to sit still!
