Research

Baby AbacusOccasionally, a research program from UC Merced will request permission to conduct a study with a selected group of children.  We require that the researcher provide parents with detailed information regarding their study.  A written permission slip will need to be signed by the parent before a child will be allowed to participate.  However, they are not required to participate and a child may be withdrawn from the study at any time.  Children will not be left alone with a student or faculty member without supervision of an ECEC staff member.  If one-on-one research is requested for the study, we use the office behind the reception desk where the administrative staff have continual visual supervision during the session.

Researchers interested in conducting a study at the ECEC can contact the director or our office to discuss the possibility of beginning one.
