We are thrilled to announce the launch of the next survey of the Children of the 2020s study, now your little one(s) are around 2 years old!
The survey is completely online, and you should have either already received your invite to participate by email and/or text, or else you can expect to receive it in the next few months (before January 2024).
Thank you to all those who have already completed their Age 2 survey!
If you haven’t completed your survey yet, not to worry you still have time! Your invite has all the details you need to complete the survey including a link to the survey and your unique survey login code. So, remember to keep an eye on your email inbox (including the spam folder) for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org and text messages from Child2020s!
The survey should take around 30 minutes and will be all about your child(ren)’s development and family life.
Once you have completed the survey, you will be sent an e-voucher as a thank you for your time and help with the study!
BabySteps activities are back!
You may have noticed the BabySteps Monthly Research Activities have paused in the lead up to the launch of the Age 2 Children of the 2020s survey. The good news is, starting from around the time you complete your Age 2 survey, there will be a whole new set of research activities that will be released monthly – all the way up to the next Children of the 2020s survey when your child is around 3 years old. As usual, by completing these activities in the app you will build up your BabySteps reward points; for every 5 reward points, you will be sent a £5 e-voucher!
Exciting things to come in BabySteps!
You might remember that we asked BabySteps users how we can improve the app, and since then we have been working hard on making BabySteps as good as it can be! Of all the things we have been doing, we thought you might like to know the following:
- We have added a whole bunch of bug fixes and updates which should help to make the app run a lot smoother (please remember to update your app via Google Play or the AppStore).
- We are currently working on a new set of trackers that will help you record all the special moment and millstones that your little one goes through as they are growing into toddlerhood.
- We also have been putting our heads together to think of some more News and Article for you to get your teeth stuck into, one of which we have been putting together is an interview with a childcare expert! And we will shortly be asking you, our BabySteps families, what kinds of thing you would like us to ask them– so please stay tuned!
And Finally a Big Thank you!
Thank you so much for your commitment to the study so far, and we cannot wait to hear from you at the Age 2 survey!
