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. Our future fundraising goal is to be able to provide children a subsidized meal plan each day, of healthy, organic, locally produced foods. 

Tuition Grant Giving

We would love to offer tuition grants to Nanaimo Innovation Academy families that demonstrate financial need. If you would like to anonymously help support a family in need of tuition grants, please contact nanaimoinnovation@gmail.com.
