Living and working in Nanaimo, British Columbia is the dream of an increasing number of professionals. The Nanaimo Child Development Centre is situated in central Nanaimo.  Our many beaches, hiking and biking trails, diving, surfing and skiing destinations, magnificent mountain views, diverse culture, access to leading post-secondary institutions, and one of the best climates in the country and an affordable West-Coast Lifestyle are just a few of the reasons why Nanaimo is one of the most desirable places to settle in Canada.

Access to and from the island is mainly by air (Nanaimo Airport and regular float planes and helicopters to the mainland) and major car ferries, all of which are excellent, easy to reach and with exceptional frequency of service.

Removing long commutes and the addition of the abundance of nature that surrounds us in Nanaimo add to the “Quality of Life” not many other communities can offer.
