We are a group of researchers in the Psychology Department at UBC where we research Knowledge, Imagination, and Development (i.e. K.I.D.). Our research focuses on a wide-range of topics related to children’s and adults’ ability to reason about someone else’s perspective. We are part of a larger team of researchers, the Early Development Research Group , dedicated to studying child development from many angles.

We thank all of the children and parents who have participated in our research, and the childcare centres that have kindly opened their doors to us. We are always looking for new families to participate. Making advances in understanding child development would not be possible without the support of interested parents, childcare personnel, and children.


Please look around our website to learn more about what we do and how you can become involved.


We are profoundly grateful for the donations we have received. 

Below are all the enterprises that we would like to thank:
