We are travelling with our 6 year old to Kenya this year and we have booked the Turtle Bay Beach Club at Watumu as it has a really good kids club and is all inclusive etc. It has a good reputation with families on trip advisor. Not sure what Hotels in Diani have kids club but I am sure someone will advise.

There are plenty of local safari companies mentioned on this forum. ie: JT Safaris, Southern Cross Safaris etc.

Haller Park in Mombasa is a good park to take the kids, also their is a waterpark in Mombasa.

You have plenty of time, so just keep searching on trip advisor and you will get many ideas.

Southern Palms has a kid's club and the animation team girl is really good with all the kids on the beach, the pool and games etc.

I would say pick a hotel on the north coast with kids. Somewhere like Voyager which has a great kids club and animation team, fun pool with water slide, inter-connecting rooms, early suppers if required and only half an hour from the airport.

So, while the south coast lot are still waiting to get on the ferry for the journey down to Diani your kids can be in the pool, eating icecream and be happy.

There are plenty of recommended safari companies on TA. My advice is to book a private safari so that you can stop and start when you want.
