    During the early 1970s, KCAA felt that there might be a need for additional preschools on Oahu. The Board commissioned a survey and found that there were communities in need of childcare facilities. The growing suburban area of Hawaii Kai had the most urgent need. In 1976, Kuapa welcomed its first class of children.
