Welcome to Red Hen and The Granary
on the farm at Manor House Farm, Legbourne, Louth
"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 our 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. This is of immense benefit with the Coronavirus precautions and the risk assessments we have in place. This also makes Red Hen a safe place for outdoor visits and nature walks - by appointment only.
Our Granary 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 in the Granary office then drop-off to their respective bubble group outdoors. Exit is via our one-way system.
The Granary upstairs is an amazing space that overlooks our paddocks and nature area. Because of the large space, we are now able to offer a space to talk to parents (one family at at time) and view photos and a virtual tour to show and discuss the special things we have to offer.
We hope to resume baby sessions and training events when possible if there is easing of coronavirus precautions in the future.
We hope you enjoy our website which offers a little taste of what we have at Red Hen. For

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.)
