We were contacted by a representative from RDF Television and Channel 4 to let us know they are looking for parents and children to take part in their show, The Secret Lives of 4 and 5 Year Olds.
This exciting television series will follow four and five year olds as they take their first steps towards independence and embark on the new challenges of going to school. The series will follow their development from the moment they meet for the first time, through the forming of friendships to learning social rituals and friendly competition. The entire process will be observed and monitored by leading scientists and child psychologists who will provide occasional comment on the children’s stages of development.
Filming is likely to take place at a location in London and the days are led by two highly trained teachers. RDF Television and Channel 4 will cover the cost of travel and accommodation for all children selected to take part in the series. The children are filmed for no more than 5 hours per day and they would be needed for up to three weeks filming over the summer holidays.
