OUR PRE-K PROGRAM - FULL
We have 8 children each day in our 3-5 Program. Currently, we are full and are not taking any additional names on our waitlist. We will reopen the waitlist May 1, 2023.
FOR UNDER 3 YEARS - FULL
We have two Infant Toddler classes for 8 children in each. Currently, we are full and are not taking any additional names on our waitlist at this time. We will reopen the waitlist May 1, 2023.
We keep our waitlist manageable so that we can realistically predict start times. We typically add not more than 20 families on each program's waitlist.
Every April we confirm with current and waitlisted families to confirm their plans for the upcoming school year. If the child care and elementary programs are full for the upcoming year, we add a small number of families to our waitlist in case spots open throughout the year.
Our waitlist and applications typically open every May 1 at 8:30am and close it when they fill.
We post the waitlist request form on our Facebook Page.
We do not add families to our waitlist outside of May 1....unless a program has space available.
There is a non-refundable $25 waitlist fee. This helps to ensure that we’re communicating with only serious inquires. We contact families in the order of when they joined the waitlist and paid the $25 waitlist fee.
When you eventually enroll at Nanaimo Innovation Academy, the $25 fee goes towards the $50 application processing fee.
Families who decide to enroll will be required to submit a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500.00 in order to retain the space for their child until the agreed start date. The total amount of the deposit will be used toward the last month’s fees.
We believe in a transparent waitlist process and so at anytime will let you know where you stand on the list.
