York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab – ‘Baby Friendship’ project participants

The ‘Baby Friendship’ project is looking for participants

York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York) is inviting 6- to 18-months-old infants and their parents to participate in the ‘Baby Friendship’ project.

Research suggests that children’s abilities to make friends begin to develop in first year of life. For example, you may have noticed that, when they meet to play, babies observe each other or share toys. However it is not very clear how these interactions occur and how they develop over the first months of life. Our project focusses on understanding the dynamic of infants’ interactions while they play. We anticipate a variety of styles, so there is no right or wrong. By discovering how friendships develop beginning with the first years of life, we hope to learn how to foster children’s social and emotional wellbeing, and to facilitate how well children adapt to interactions within the school environment.

Participating in this project involves one visit (approximately 1.5h) to the University of York. The research session is organized like a play date during which your baby has the chance to play with another same–age infant. We have a play room which is suitable for this and plenty of toys. So, it is pretty fun for the babies. You will be with your baby at all times throughout the session. While the babies play, we will record their behaviour and how they respond emotionally to each other.

Parents receive £10 to support the trip to the University of York and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking in case you decide to travel by car.

If you have a baby 6- to 18-months-old (or approaching this age) and are interested to take part in the ‘Baby Friendship’ project please sign-up by filling in the form at the following link. The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.

Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

In case you would like to find out more before signing up, please contact us at:

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

We are currently seeking host families in the Harrogate/ York area to look after children attending boarding school in the UK whose parents are based overseas, either as expatriates or as foreign nationals.
Children whose parents live overseas are often unable to go home for leave-out weekends and half term holidays and when this is the case, College Guardians finds host families to look after them.

It is noticeable that as half term holidays are getting longer, more children are going home for this period, so often we only need host families for leave-out weekends.

Dates and lengths of stay depend very much on the school that the child attends and the distance that their home is from the UK.

Families chose to host students for a number of different reasons, e.g. it introduces another culture into the home, the parents themselves have been at boarding school and so understand the importance of having a “home from home”, or their own children are studying a foreign language and this is a good opportunity to practice!

Our hosts are paid a daily rate that covers full board, in addition other expenses such as travel and sundries may be claimed.

If you are interested and would like further information, please contact Jane Eldridge, Director of Guardianship Services, or Caroline Lloyd Guardianship Manager, or call us for an informal discussion on 01684 581600.

The National Childbirth Trust (NCT)

This is what volunteering for York NCT looks like. The York branch has a number of bumps and babies and coffee groups running regularly as well as a cloth nappy library. We also have a newsletter, a website (which really needs updating), regular Baby First Aid classes which are run in collaboration with the British Red Cross and we attend local events when we can to share information about support available through NCT.

Our volunteers meet when and where we can – often with toddlers and babies in tow to talk about what’s happening in branch and make decisions and plans for the coming months. Our very informal monthly meeting is on the second Tuesday of the month and we vary the times so that it happens on days and evenings to make it more accessible for different schedules. We have a number of volunteering opportunities available short term or long term from supporting the branch by lending your voice in meetings, taking on small administrative opportunities to picking up specific roles where you can spend a few hours a month helping the branch at times that suit you. We are a small team of friendly and supportive volunteers and would love to see some new faces so please get in touch via if you have any questions or want to express an interest in getting involved. We welcome people to attend meet ups or informal meetings with no obligation to take on specific responsibilities.
