Welcome to our New Nurseries

Welcome Aboard!

The East Coast College Nurseries start a new chapter in their lives after joining the GYCT Group in August.


Willow Day Nursery (formerly College Day Nursery), Little Ducks Day Nursery (formerly East Coast College Nursery) and Ladybird Day Care provide full time care for children aged 3 months to 5 years in purpose-designed buildings. Holiday care is also available for children up to 8 years at Willow Day Nursery. All three have been found to be 'Good' in all areas by Ofsted, with staff praised for their dedication and passion to providing a high-quality service to all children and their families.

Our new nurseries all benefit from good sized, light filled rooms, with direct access to large, well equipped outdoor areas, offering children richer learning and development opportunities. Sessions and resources are carefully planned to provide a balance of child- and adult-led activities. Staff ratios are observed at all times to ensure that the children are safe and to encourage learning opportunities as they naturally occur through play.

The GYCT Group opened its first nursery in 2003. Since then it has grown to a thriving group of 10 nurseries, in Norwich, Filby, Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and now Lowestoft. We are looking forward to working with the families of many new children.

Although all our nurseries share the same ethos and guiding principles, each has its own distinctive character - so it's a good idea to arrange a visit to make sure you choose the right setting for your child. Find out more by browsing our Childcare site.
