About the project

We helped build the new Integrated Early Learning Centre (IELC) on the previous Hyde Street Kindergarten site next to Footscray City Primary School.

We partnered with the Maribyrnong City Council to provide a kindergarten for three and four-year-olds, long day care, and maternal and child health services.

It will further support the growing demand for early years and education services in the area.

You can find out more information on the centre’s timetables, fees and other FAQs through their website.


From the 2017–18 State Budget, the Government announced $10 million to build early childhood facilities at new government primary schools. This included Footscray Learning Precinct’s new Integrated Early Learning Centre.
