Merinda Park Learning and Community Centre is a not for profit community-managed organisation that provide pathways for those who are pursuing a career, change of job or going on to further their education.

As a Learn Local provider, we provide students with the opportunities of learning through low cost, flexible and supportive courses.

Merinda Park Learning & Community will be undergoing extensive renovations in Semester 2, 2016. As a result of the renovations all classes will be relocated to a facility at 1st Floor, 7-9 Bakewell Street, Cranbourne as at 1 July 2016. The only service remaining at the Centre during this time is Out of School Hours Care, Occasional Care, Vacation Care and Playgroup.

The aim is to be back in the new building by the start of 2017. This is a very exciting time which will create more space for all Centre users.
