Liardet Street family & children's centre background

A pool of $4.5 m funding is available from federal, state and local government to create a new family and childrens services centre in Liardet St to meet the needs of families in Port Melbourne/Albert Park.
There are 3 sites involved - all on Crown Land

  • 81 - 85 Liardet St (CoPP is committee of management)
  • rear of 85 Liardet St (LFK is committee of management
  • 186 Esplanade West, Lady Forster Kindergarten (LFK is committee of management)

To optimise the limited space available for the new secondary school, it was agreed that a new site be found for the Albert Park College Childcare Centre. APCCC is in temporary accommodation in the grounds of the Port Melbourne Primary School. They need a new home.

There is also an extensive waiting list for childcare in Port Phillip, particulary in Albert Park.
