"IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE A MORE REWARDING AND INTERESTING PLACE FOR A CHILD TO BE THAN RED HEN DAY NURSERY" (Wendy Scott, for Nursery World)

CHILDREN THRIVE IN THIS INSPIRATIONAL NURSERY" (Ofsted)
Red Hen is a wonderful day nursery on a working farm in rural Lincolnshire. We are open for children from 0-5 years and are lucky to have private access to our own extensive outdoor areas.
THE GRANARY area was set up in 2019 with funding as below. The Granary is now our car park and entrance for the nursery. The Granary upstairs is an amazing space that overlooks our paddocks and nature area. This area is now used as our wonderful 'Nest' (baby room). We also have parent and baby sessions from time to time -please phone us if you would be interested in joining these.
Each group has its own dedicated staff team and base area, and all children experience our nature areas every day enjoying the awe and wonder of our fields, ponds and woodlands. All children enjoy Red Hen's award-winning home-cooked meals. In addition (and included in the fees) children participate in daily food experiences from soil to plate.
We are always keen to hear from dedicated early years practitioners who would like to join our team. Please visit our contact page for details.
We hope you enjoy our website which offers a little taste of what we have at Red Hen. For more insights please visit and subscribe to our youtube channel for our videos: >>
Also please join Jane and her grandson: Enjoy a taster of our private Red Hen environment! (the dogs came too, but please note that the only dogs allowed belong to the owners; whilst our Red Hen children may see them, they are always in the control of the owners.)
