"Jamie’s was our only outing and outlet for three years. It gave us connections with others we will cherish for life. Jamie's made everything that seemed so very wrong in the world at that time OK."

A safer haven for kids with fragile immune systems

Welcome to Jamie's Preschool

Jamie’s Preschool provides a rich program of play, learning and support for children facing cancer, blood disorders, organ transplants and other critical illnesses. Founded in 1986 by parents of Calgary cancer patients, Jamie’s operates as an independent, registered charity and is one of North America's only early childhood education programs that serves immune-compromised children.

Jamie's Preschool holds classes three afternoons a week at a location near the Alberta Children's Hospital, including a weekly music program, a nearby gym class, plus special outings and field trips... Contact us to learn more!


Back to school! 

We were so glad to see some of our little friends enjoying Jamie's playground through the summer, and so eager to get back into the classroom! This month we're looking forward to our first field trip to beautiful Kananaskis Country and the start of our gym program at Calgary STARS. Looking forward to another fun year at Jamie's Preschool!


Thanks to our families for the new bench! 

We are so grateful to our families for their thoughtful gift of a new park bench for our outdoor play area. Thanks again to all who co-ordinated, contributed, sourced and installed this wonderful addition to our playground!
