Welcome to Early Learning!

Early Learning is the first step of your journey at PREP.

Come and join us for a weekly parent and tot play group.

Early Learning provides a WARM PREP welcome to parents and their children.

The Early Learning Program is the FIRST experience families have with PREP and we strive to lay the groundwork for a TRUSTING RELATIONSHIP that will foster many happy years at PREP.

Parents learn to focus on the JOYFUL LEARNING and the Early Learning class provides a safe and fun environment for all.

A typical morning starts with parents and children ENJOYING a relaxed play time that includes circle time where children learn to initiate and maintain eye contact, sit independently, request a turn and imitate actions and sounds. Centre structured play areas where each parent receives direct instruction on how to help their child learn. A FUN craft activity is where parents are ENCOURAGED to explore different textures and materials with their child. Children really enjoy gym time climbing in and over tunnels, coming down the slide. Snack time is  a treat where children enjoy a snack while sitting  with friends.

There is much to CELEBRATE throughout the year as we see the children progress to first steps, first words and first friendships.

PREP believes that parents are their child’s most important teacher and play sessions are the best way to learn.

Individual Speech Consults

One-on-one speech consults are offered to families with our expert Speech and Language Pathologist.

Resource Staff

PREP’s dedicated Early Learning team includes a Coordinator, Family Support Liaison, Speech and Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist and Volunteers.


The only fee a family is required to pay is the annual Society Fee of $75.00.

The Early Learning Program is possible due to the generosity of Calgary and Area Child and Family Services Authority, donors and the fundraising efforts of our Board of Directors.
