The PREP Program (PREP) is where families, who have a child with Down syndrome, find expert advice, innovative services, and best of all, hope, for their child’s future. The goal is “inclusion for life” and that begins in the home, continues at school, then leads to an independent life with a meaningful job. Parents connect in a welcoming, supportive community that accepts their child’s disability yet challenges them to expect more.
PREP partners with government, community sponsors, and individual donors to provide educational, therapy and family support services that enable each child to achieve his or her own unique potential and help parents become their child’s best advocate.
At PREP it is all about “inclusion for life” and it is happening in Calgary first!
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. We welcome families from out of town, province and country to visit PREP on a Outreach basis. Parents can book a speech-language therapy consult for their child or meet with an Inclusion Strategist and access resources from PREP Links.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment when you’re ready.
Private Speech-Language Therapy
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.

I am very excited to be joining the PREP Program as the Community Outreach Coordinator. I have a passion for education and helping each individual student reach their full potential.
I have previously worked as a kindergarten specialist with the Calgary Board of Education where I helped design and implement educational programs to meet individual student’s learning needs. Previous to that I worked as an English Language Learner Specialist and a classroom teacher.
I have completed my graduate studies in Inclusive and Special Education and look forward to helping to support families on their exciting and rewarding journey through their child’s school years.

The Board of Directors honoured Gerry & Elaine Wood at a celebration dinner for their passion, heart and dedication to building PREP to where it is today. The Woodridge PREP Centre is a wonderful, lasting legacy of the Woodridge Charity Golf Tournament 1985 – 2015.
Although the tournament has ended the Woods continue to support PREP through the Woodridge PREP Partner Match.
