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'S HAPPINESS IS AT THE HEART OF EVERY DECISION STAFF MAKE" (Ofsted)
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 entrance for the nursery so parents and visitors can talk safely to us at the Granary office as they pass through to acces the nursery buildings. Exit is via our one-way system outdoors.
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 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 our 'Nest' (baby room).
We are pleased to have resumed parent and baby sessions again. Please phone us if you would be interested in joining these.
Please also phone for details of our cookery demos.
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.)
