Through this review process Council identified that Empire Early Learning Centre is a high quality, well-resourced service, yet has physical limitations that restrict its ability to meet the community’s changing needs and demands, with no room for expansion or redevelopment. As a result, the Maribyrnong City Council has decided that Empire Early Learning Centre will cease operation on Friday 16 December 2016.
