Nurseries reopen in Great Yarmouth area

11 December 2019

All six nurseries closed as a result of the insolvency of the Great Yarmouth Community Trust are due to reopen on Thursday 12 December.

The nurseries have reopened after Norfolk County Council set up a new company called NCC Nurseries Limited to run them. Staff previously employed by the Trust at these establishments have been offered employment with the new company, so in most cases the nursery workers known and trusted by parents and children will be there to welcome them back. It is anticipated parents will be able to access the same nursery provision hours for their children as previously.

The affected nurseries are: Priory Day Nursery, Peggotty Nursery, Calthorpe Nursery, and Willow Day Nursery all in Great Yarmouth, Seagulls Day Nursery in Gorleston and Filby Nursery.

Sarah Jones, Norfolk County Council’s Director of Commissioning, Partnerships and Resources for Children’s Services, said: “We are really pleased to have played our part in bringing this nursery provision back for the Great Yarmouth community. We know it is a valued and key part of the community for children and parents.”

Whilst the nurseries are being re-established, cooked lunches will not be available so parents will need to provide their child with a packed lunch. Anyone with concerns about this should contact us.

Parents will need to register their children with NCC Nurseries Limited on Thursday. As it is a new company, every child will need to be newly registered at their reopened nursery so all the personal details are recorded in order to keep children safe, meet their needs, and keep parents fully informed about their child’s progress. Registration forms will be available at the nurseries on Thursday and are also available to download at To register children, nursery staff will require proof of identity and age (e.g. child’s birth certificate) and if available the child’s red book.

Further queries can be emailed to the individual nurseries on the following addresses: (Nursery telephone contact details will be available from Thursday)

Any parents unable to find the information they need can contact the Norfolk County Council Family Information Service by email at or on 01603 306300.
