I think that you should start with a big understanding of different components of a cloud infrastructure in general; types of clouds,...
in your case and that you want to start with labs i recommend using Cloud Open Source Softwares, like OpenStack, CloudStack, ..
But i think that you should start OpenStack: free , Big community , lot of features, and can support all kind of levels: you could start with IaaS artichecture then move to PaaS, then SaaS
a big favourite is the RDO scripts which you can run on your CentOs machines and would require you no time to establish the private cloud on you machines with most configurations easily managed
and you if have any more questions, don't hesitate :)
