About Us

Privately owned and operated by Ian & Kaye McKean, Kakapo Creek is designed using the very best evidence based family research, incorporating attachment theory and neuroscience.

Ian and Kaye have worked within the early childhood industry for the past 20 years and have decided that it’s time to create a childcare that really does what is best for children and their families.


Ian has a Masters Degree in Family Life and Kaye has a Masters Degree in Social Welfare. Both are passionate that happy, healthy families are what children need best to thrive.

At this stage the anticipated opening date will be in 2020. We will keep this website and our facebook page updated with any new information as it comes to hand.

In the meantime we welcome inquiries from prospective parents and teachers.
