Support for families following the closure of Great Yarmouth Community Trust

Advice and guidance for parents following the closures of Great Yarmouth Community Trust.

Following the closure of Great Yarmouth Community Trust, two early years providers in Lowestoft closed on 28 November 2019.

They are:

  • Little Ducks Nursery St Peter's Street, Lowestoft NR32 2NB
  • Ladybird Day Care Kirkley Children's Centre NR33 0LU

Support for parents

We are aware that the sudden closure of childcare providers will cause difficulties for many families in Suffolk.

For parents wanting to recover childcare funds from nurseries or if you have left any personal items in either of the premises or any others who feel they are owed money - there will be an arranged time for parents and staff to pick up their belongings.
