About PREP

The PREP Program is a not-for-profit organization that provides innovative educational and therapy services to children with Down syndrome. 

PREP has the privilege of accompanying parents on the challenging, yet ultimately rewarding, journey of parenting a child with special needs. We believe in “inclusion for life” that starts in the home, continues in school and community, and ultimately leads to the workplace.

Our Vision

Inclusion for Life

Inspiring families on the journey of inclusion for their child with Down syndrome, PREP provides exceptional family centered services that empower parents to advocate for their child’s full citizenship in the community.  

Our Values

  • We are family – Parent involvement
  • You and me together – Partnerships
  • I believe I belong – Inclusive education

  • I do too belong – Acceptance
