"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!


Thanks to CHAS!

Jamie's Preschool is the grateful recipient of a generous grant from the Children's Hospital Aid Society to update our library and furnish a reading corner in our future new premises. We are very excited about this opportunity! CHAS is a charitable organization that funds programs, services and projects for the Alberta Children's Hospital, other agencies and the community.

Celebrating 25 years!

Many thanks to all our families and friends who came together to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary and pay tribute to longtime staff, volunteers and supporters. Since 1986 Jamie's has been providing a safe haven for play and learning for young children with fragile immune systems. View our DVD celebrating 25 years of Jamie's Preschool here.


GlobalTV joins the tribute!
