Welcome to Kid Think at Providence College!

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​How do children learn about the world around them? Why are we able to imagine and pretend? Why is Simon Says such a fun game? Kid Think tackles all these questions and more by studying how children think and behave.

How does Kid Think work?

We rely on families in our community to participate in our research. All of our projects are designed like games and involve lots of one-on-one interaction with our staff, so children find them fun and enjoyable. For example, we might play pretending games or read silly stories. By seeing how children react to our games or by asking them what they think, we learn what the world looks like through a child's eyes.
