Our son has been to two Jolly Giant locations, and we have been blown away with how great everyone has been to us! The staff are great, and are so good with the kids. There are so many field trips and events that our little guy is telling us about! I will always recommend Jolly Giant to anyone who is looking for a great daycare!

This was our daughter’s first real experience with a daycare. In a new city and new spoken language, she has adjusted amazingly well. She now runs to the daycare in the morning, eager to see her friends. That is priceless. This is all due to the staff’s kind, structured and patient approach. She has learned more than we ever thought possible. We feel confident she will be well-prepared for school. We are so happy we have chosen your facility!

The Learning Train is the only full day educational service for children 30 months to school age in Nanaimo. They follow a daily routine to give children a head start before entering Kindergarten. The Preschool area is setup like a classroom with Early phonics, number recognition, calendar, various centers and physical literacy to name some of the activities offered. The Learning Train has one of largest educational spaces I have seen in the city
