Creative Childcare Co-Founder
Craig Neil

Creative Childcare is privately owned and operated. Owner and Co-founder, Craig Neil has a wealth of business experience in a variety of industries including the broader communications sector, engineering, childcare, computer software and property development. Through his working career Craig has developed a thorough knowledge of project management, leadership and the general running of successful businesses.
Craig, a father of three, is also a successful yachtsman who has competed in many national races including the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Craig knows what it takes to provide high quality innovative early learning and sees many similarities in running a business to that of a skipper.
“What I love about sailing is the teamwork. It takes 12 people to turn our boat 90 degrees. Everyone has an important role, they have to execute it well and everything has to be perfectly synchronised. I love watching that teamwork and it’s the same in business. It takes only one person to be out of synch, or bad leadership, or one wrong decision, and you lose places or races.”
Craig is committed to mentoring his team at Creative Childcare in providing a happy and welcoming environment for children where they can laugh, play and grow.
