Lunch provision

Initially, at least until Christmas, cooked lunches will not be available in any of the re-opened nurseries so parents will need to provide their child with a packed lunch. Please contact us on the numbers below for further information on this.

Important: Registering your child

As NCC Nurseries Ltd is a new company, every child will need to be newly registered at their re-opened nursery so we have all the personal details we need to keep your child safe, meet their needs, and keep you fully informed about their progress. Registration forms will be available at the nurseries. Alternatively you can download a registration form. To register your child staff will need to see proof of identity and age (eg birth certificate) and if available your red book.

Insolvency support

We are aware that the sudden closure of childcare providers will cause difficulties for many families in Great Yarmouth. For parents wanting to recover child care funds from nurseries, or any others who feel they are owed money:

Email insolvency-gyct@larking-gowen.co.uk

Call 0330 024 0888

If you’ve been in touch with Larking Gowen they have probably sent you a ‘Proof of Debt – General form’.

To help you complete the form we have filled out this example form – all you need to do is replace the details we have filled in with you own.

Before you send the form off, take a photocopy of it or take a picture on your phone for your records. Also take a photocopy or picture of any receipt or other evidence you send Larking Gowen.

Because the trust ran out of money, unfortunately you’re unlikely to get back everything you’re owed and, in some cases, may not get anything.
