Thanks for your interest in Nanaimo Innovation Academy.



We are licensed for 20 children in our 3-5 Program. Currently, we are full and are not taking any additional names on our waitlist for 2019 or 2020. We will likely reopen the waitlist closer to May 2020 for the September 2020 school year. 

If you are interested in the 3-5 program for September 2021, we will be doing tours during July and August 2020. 


We are licensed for 12 children in our Infant Toddler Program. Currently, we are full and are not taking any additional names on our waitlist at this time. We may open the IT waitlist in May or June 2020. 



We keep our waitlist manageable so that we can realistically predict start times. Every May we confirm with families on the waitlist if they still intend to attend the daycare. If there is space, we promote the waitlist on our Facebook Page

When the waitlist opens up, we invite interested families to spend some time with us to find out if the Nanaimo Innovation Academy is right for your child. Our visits are scheduled between 9:30am-10:30am, and usually last 30 minutes. 

There is a non-refundable $25 waitlist fee. This helps to ensure that we’re communicating with only serious inquires. When you eventually enroll at Nanaimo Innovation Academy, the $25 application processing fee is waived. 


We believe in a transparent waitlist process and so at anytime will let you know where you stand on the list.
