Nanaimo Innovation Academy
Nanaimo Innovation Academy is a licensed non-profit daycare in Nanaimo, BC for children ages 12 months to 3 years old in our Infant/Toddler program or 3-5 years old in our other program.
We utilize the best practices from various educational philosophies-- Waldorf, Montessori, Reggio, Whole Child Education, Play-Based Learning-- without being limited by the rigidity of ascribing to just one philosophy. By being flexible and in constant evaluation of what is best for child development, we can innovate and create a program designed for our students’ current needs, interests, and growth.
We participate in all Child Care Programs with the BC Government---Affordable Child Care Benefit (ACCB), Child Care Operating Funding (CCOF), Fee Reduction Initiative (FRI), and the Wage Enhancement program (WE).
In addition to providing care for children, we offer workshops throughout the year on Baby Sign Language, Baby Sensory Group, and Parent and Child Mother Goose programing. These workshops are often free or at a minimal cost.
