Welcome to Red Hen Day Nursery
on the farm at Manor House Farm, Legbourne, Louth (via our entrance at The Granary on Reston Road.)
"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. We are happy to offer outdoor visits again; conditions apply so please phone for details. Please see our virtual tour and please phone us if you would like further information about our setting.
THE GRANARY area was set up in 2019 with funding as below. The Granary is now our entrance for the nursery so parents can talk safely to us through our perspex protected hatch at the Granary office then drop-off to their respective bubble group outdoors. Exit is via our one-way system outdoors.
We have three dedicated areas where we can facilitate enabling environments for each bubble. Each bubble remains seperate througout the day, including the staff team devoted to each bubble. The areas are rotated each week to give each bubble group a chance to experience the uniqueness of each area but in addition, all children access our nature areas every day as we are able to keep the bubble groups seperate round and about our fields, ponds and woodlands. All bubble groups enjoy Red Hen's award-winning home-cooked meals in their respective areas and all children still enjoy plenty of cooking and baking.
The Granary upstairs is an amazing space that overlooks our paddocks and nature area. This area is now used as a space to compliment the mound area with extra toilets, changing area and large playroom.
We hope to resume baby sessions and training events when possible. Please phone us if you would be interested in joining these in the future.
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: >>
