By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 22 Jul 2018
A popular Hull nursery has shocked its staff and customers by announcing its sudden closure.
Jac & Gill’s Day Nursery, in Holderness Road, said it had done “everything to avoid this situation,” but that the decision had been made to shut down the business.
The business’ Newbridge Road nursery is also affected.
A letter on the front door of the nursery said: “It is with the deepest regret that we inform you that our nursery is closing.
“We understand that this has come unexpectedly and want to assure you that we have done everything to avoid this situation.
“We are sorry for all inconvenience caused, and hope you can find alternative care.”
A reason for the sudden closure of the day nursery has not yet been released.
The nursery has been contacted for further information on the news.
Jac & Gill’s was a family-run business.
Led by sisters Jackie and Gill, along with Jackie’s daughter Joanne, the business offered day care services to babies and children from six weeks old to five years old.
According to Companies House, Gill left the business in September last year, with Jackie and Joanne listed as directors.
The exact number of jobs that have been lost as a result of the sudden closure has not been confirmed by the nursery.
It is however understood that around 30 people were employed by the Holderness Road branch.
The nursery also has a branch in Clarence Street.
The letter on the door also included a list of alternative nurseries, for parents affected by the closure.
Westside Day Nursery, in Sykes Street, and the Marfleet Children’s Centre were listed as alternatives.
Jac & Gill’s also offered a range of out-of-school clubs and holiday care services.
Anyone affected can also call Andy Kemp, at the family information service, on 01482 318318, for more information and support.
The owners of the nursery thanked everyone for their support of the business, and apologised for the sudden closure.
