The Laredo College Camilo Prada Child Development Center serves as a model laboratory for LC students pursuing a degree in child development or early childhood education. The center provides high quality care for children 18 months to 5 years of age. Camilo Prada C.D.C. has been recognized as an NAEYC accredited site since September 2010. Recently, it was re-certified under the new revised standards (as a 4-star center) by the Texas Rising Star-Child Care Services.
The center implements a curriculum and assessment based on developmentally appropriate practices.
