Meet the Directors
Ian is the founder and Clinical Director of the Parents Partner and is passionate about helping families be their very best.
Kaye has long dreamed of designing an early childhood centre that provides an uncompromising service and meets the holistic needs of families. Passionately committed to the quadruple bottom line philosophy, Kakapo Creek is designed to meet these aspirations.
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.
