Our Mandate

"To provide support services and relief to children and youth with neuro-developmental disabilities and their families by developing and implementing recreation, education, and social integration opportunities and services."


NUKO has existed since 2005 and still maintains its original principles of being family driven, student focused and professionally staffed. NUKO approaches learning on an individual level. We maintain a three to one student to staff ratio which allows our staff to explore different methods of learning with each student to find the program that clicks. We serve children with a variety of barriers and provide whatever support is needed to help our students accomplish their goals. NUKO runs an Academic Learning Centre from September until June and a seven week Summer Day Camp program in July and August. Nanaimo Unique Kids Organization is a nationally registered charity.

Announcements and Media

NUKO relies on the generosity of our community and partners to operate. The costs of providing the essential services we offer to children and youth in need are high. If you are able to support our programs we would greatly appreciate it. All online funding is allocated to school and student supplies and recreation and social programming. Thank you in advance! Tax receipts available upon request.
