Albert Park College Child Care Centre has had enough
Parents and staff at Albert Park College Child Care Centre anticipated being in their temporary premises at Port Melbourne Primary School for 18 months. Instead, they will have been there for 5 years by the time of the anticipated completion of the new family and children's centre at Liardet St. An application has been lodged to have the Lady Forster Kindergarten placed on the Victorian Heritage Register. The Council must wait for the outcome of the Heritage Council's determination before proceeding with the project - even though the same case was considered by the Heritage Council some 18 months ago. The hearing may not take place until September - leaving Albert Park Child Care Centre looking at being at their current location for longer than ever anticipated. The Council will work with APCCC to support the service through this difficult period.
