Our Mission

Pacekids empowers children with diverse needs and their families through excellence in therapy, education, and play.

Created in 1994 by a passionate group of parents who wanted to see their children thrive, Pacekids Programs has impacted the lives of thousands of children and families through an Alberta Education licensed Early Childhood Services (ECS) program and a variety of Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) funded in-home and in-community programs.

Since its creation, Pacekids has remained focused on the family unit and continuously emphasizes the importance of meeting a child and family where they are at.

We serve children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Global Developmental Delay, Down
Syndrome, Brain Injury, Speech & Language delay, etc. in the Calgary area.
