NUKO's story began in 2005 when a group of parents banded together to create a learning centre where their children could be successful. NUKO opened the doors to a centre offering low student to adult ratios and a safe, accepting environment featuring small class sizes and a caring team of support staff. 

Since these humble beginnings, NUKO has grown and expanded to accommodate the need for support in our community.  NUKO is able to provide support to children ages 2.5 - 19 who face neurological differences such as autism, downs syndrome, FAS and others that impact learning.

We provide support academically, recreationally, socially and behaviourally.

NUKO still maintains the standard set by those early families who see the importance of providing the very best for our Unique Kids

We are proud of our successes - we have seen students obtain their adult graduation and gain the skills needed to transition back into the public system. 

NUKO is a Not-for-Profit registered Canadian charity.

"I cannot express in words the difference NUKO has made for my son. His learning, cognitive abilities, social skills, self awareness, self confidence, mindfulness, and overall joy has improved significantly since he has attended NUKO. He laughs, shares stories about his day, he talks about his friends at school, and he is learning! His printing has improved and I have  noticed a significant increase in his vocabulary, sentence structure, and expressing himself."
