Peter

Owner/Director

My name is Peter, Vicki is my wife and we own KAZ Possums. 

I am a Technologist, and I have always been passionate about children’s education.  So, 11 years ago, we founded KAZ Early Learning Centre in Dolan’s Bay.   We are also majority shareholder of another Centre in Bowral.

I spend part of my week in Bowral, where Vicki and I founded a Charity, Your Angel.  Amongst many things, the Charity also focusses on using technology to help children with special needs, in particular Autism.  We have 9 grandchildren, which is why good Child Care and Education is so important for us.
