The 11th annual Downtown Newark Food and Brew Festival will be held from 2-9 p.m., Saturday, July 26.

A nationally accredited and state licensed facility, the UD Laboratory Preschool offers an inclusive early education setting designed to encourage children to explore the world around them and reinforces different styles of learning.

It functions within the College of Education and Human Development, providing high quality inclusive programs for children ages two to six and their families. In addition, it serves to train and mentor undergraduate clinical students; facilitate research projects by University faculty and students; and serve as a site for professional development of high school students and early childhood education providers. 

The Laboratory Preschool is located on the southeast side of the University campus at 459 Wyoming Road in Newark. Those who are interested in attending the open house or who would like more information can call 302-831-8556 or visit the Lab Preschool website.
