The PREP Program is a resource centre of excellence dedicated to the inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome in home, school and community life.

We are a registered, non-profit organization founded in 1988 by a registered Speech Language Pathologist.  The PREP Program now provides a wide variety of services and resources to individuals with Down syndrome in the Calgary area and we welcome visitors from out of town, province, and country.


Our dedicated staff are here to support families along their unique journey of parenting a child with Down syndrome.  Our goal is that each becomes a contributing member of the community, enjoying all the rights and responsibilities that being a caring, contributing member of the community entails.


The Woodridge PREP Centre is pleased to provide our families with current resources on Down syndrome, child development and parenting. In addition, articles are available for download on our website. ‘Like’ PREP on Facebook and visit our page regularly for inspirational stories and photos. Join a community of  caring parents who share your journey.
