The Secret Life of 4 and 5 Year Olds
This Channel 4 Observational Documentary follows 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 follows 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 is observed and monitored by leading scientists and child psychologists who will provide occasional comment on the children's stages of development.
Filming for the series will take place in North London over the Summer holidays and filming days are led by two highly trained teachers. The children are filmed for no more than 5 hours per day and they would be needed for one or two weeks filming over a 6 week period from July 24th.
