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.

About PREP

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.


PREP offers programs for children with Down syndrome from 14 months – 18 years. Signing-up is easy as parents self-refer. A great first step is to book a tour of the Woodridge PREP Centre. Our Family Support team will be pleased to answer your questions and assist you with registering. Please contact, Annamarie Zobatar at (403) 282-5011 ext. 125 or email at annamarie@prepprog.org to book an appointment when you’re ready.


In addition to weekly programs parents can also register for private speech-language therapy , reading tutoring or private occupational therapy consults. Appointments can be weekly, biweekly, or occasional depending on your child’s needs.
