About Us

Providence offers two unique Alberta Education-funded school-based 

program streams: those based in our six schools across Calgary and those

based in approved neighbourhood community preschools and child care 

programs (our LEARN Program). Providence school-based programs are 

designed to support children who may not be meeting typical developmental

milestones and include early Intervention, preschool, junior kindergarten and


To attend our school programs a child must qualify for special education 

funding (Program Unit Funding - PUF) through Alberta Education. Each child

has an Individual Program Plan (IPP) developed by the Providence Learning

Team and the parent/guardian. This IPP outlines educational and and therapy

goals specific to the child's identified needs.
