Parents affected by the closure of two nurseries in this area are being offered help.
Alpha Nurseries are shutting in Downham Market and Diss causing problems for some parents.
Norfolk County Council says its Family Information Service (FIS) may be able to help.
It offers free confidential, and impartial information about local services and support for children aged 0-19 years (or up to 25 for children with special educational needs and disabilities) as well as matching families up with alternative provision in the local area.
The council is also working with other providers to see what further support might be needed in each area.
The council is responsible for making sure there are enough childcare places in the area but does not run any nurseries itself and said it had no role in the Alpha Nurseries closure.
County councillor Penny Carpenter said “I know the importance of being able to access childcare, as it was a real lifeline for me as a working parent. The sudden closure of these nurseries will be unsettling for parents but we are here to help.
“We’re working closely with local providers to ensure that we can support families with an alternative childcare provision. If you’re having difficulty finding childcare, please do contact our Family Information Service outreach team on 0344 800 8020, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/fis. Our family information officers will offer support to help you find the childcare that meets your family’s needs.”
