​GIVING 

Nanaimo Innovation Academy Annual Fund


Nanaimo Innovation Academy is a not-for-profit daycare. We rely largely on tuition and fundraising to finance our educational program.

We strive to provide a high-quality daycare program that utilizes the best practices in early childhood pedagogy.  We believe in paying our staff a living wage that not only reflects their skills, talents, and education but also their value to our daycare community. 

Financial Aid Program For Families in Need

We have families attending NIA from all socio-economic backgrounds. Even with the Affordable Child Care Benefit (ACCB), it is still financially difficult for some families.

 

We aim to provide financial aid to Nanaimo Innovation Academy families that demonstrate financial need. If you would like to anonymously donate to a family in need of financial support, please:
