Infancy Study and Research Group members are mainly Education and Psychology professionals, particularly interested in early childhood, 0-to-6-year-old children. Currently we are part of the Psychology Research Group, Person and Context.
We understand children as competent beings, with highly marked potentialities but also with some maturational characteristics that make them vulnerable. When looking at their growth in a social context, we assess the characteristics of the environment they live in as factors that have a direct or indirect effect on this process.
Our field of study is wide as we tackle different settings, not only those of school. We refer to the family, mass media, leisure, and also local policies or policies from other public institutions.
