Stop the closure of Empire Street Early Learning Centre

Stop the closure of Empire Street Early Learning Centre

We would like the Maribyrnong Council to reverse their decision to close the Empire Street Early Learning Centre in Footscray.

Why is this important?

The council made the decision to close the Empire Street Early Learning Centre in Footscray in a closed council meeting on 19 July 2016. This unconscionable decision will have a detrimental impact on current and future local families who use this valuable service for child care (with kindergarten teacher) and for check ups with the maternal and child health nurse. Centre staff are devastated at the news of the closure and redeployment for all staff to other centres still remains uncertain.This area of Footscray has a high density population and with developers gaining approval to build more apartment blocks, removal of such important community services is negligent. Please help the local community of Footscray keep Footscray a friendly suburb for families to live.
