Commencing in late 2020, STARs enrolled over 250 families from across Australia to learn about children’s sleep and development from 12 months of age to when children begin school. 

We are still collecting and analysing data to answer important questions about:

  • when and where children sleep
  • how this changes across the week and across time
  • how these changes are associated with the environments, lives and developmental outcomes of children and their families.

We will publish our findings as they are complete.
