Our Story

The KingKids story centres around family. Jo MacKenzie-King always wanted a big family. After having four children with husband Andy, instead of expanding their immediate family, Jo and Andy thought bigger and created the KingKids family.

To do this Jo went back to study and completed her Diploma Children’s Services, and in October 2012 they purchased their first Centre in Berwick, aiming to offer childcare and kindergarten services to local families. They transformed this Centre from one where quality was lacking to the first centre in the City of Casey to be awarded as Exceeding the National Quality Standards.

Fast forward to 2015, KingKids Berwick had a long waiting list and a childcare centre down the road in Narre Warren was closing down, providing KingKids with the opportunity to provide childcare and education for more local families. Less than 12 months later, KingKids Narre Warren becomes the 2nd Centre in the City of Casey to be rewarded with a rating as Exceeding the National Quality Standards.

In November 2017, KingKids was fortunate to secure the lease for a brand-new state of the art Centre in Rowville, raising the bar in terms of what quality childcare and early education looks like. Sadly, only months after opening, Andy passed away. He would have been so proud of KingKids Rowville.

KingKids opened their 4th Centre in Hallam in November 2020, and it needs to be seen to be believed. Now, their 5th Centre, KingKids Bentleigh has recently opened in January 2023. Many exciting growth opportunities are ahead for KingKids!

Owned and run by people who know and value their team (not shareholders or multi nationals) is just one of the things that sets KingKids apart from other Centres.

Providing quality childcare service that “excites children and delights families” was Andy’s mantra, so to honour his memory, the KingKids team continue to strive to be the best they can be and make a positive difference in the lives of our communities.
