Established in 1930 by Onica Prall, a Hood College professor, the Child Development Laboratory School provides education for preschool children from Frederick and surrounding communities, as well as for children whose parents are employed by Hood College. The Laboratory School is a component of Hood’s NCATE- and NAEYC-accredited teacher education program. Hood College students continue to study teaching and the development of children by observation and practicum experiences in the preschool.
Onica Prall is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The school follows Hood College’s academic calendar.
