RED Hen Day Nursery in Legbourne is celebrating a recent inspection by Ofsted which rated it ‘outstanding’ in every area.
The day nursery has won many awards since opening on owner David and Jane Harrisons’ farm in 2004.
The Ofsted report says children are cared for in a highly innovative and welcoming environment, where they are extremely well-supported to meet their individual needs.
Children make excellent progress in their learning and development. They flourish in the care of the highly skilled and enthusiastic staff group who are committed to developing their own skills through the sharing of best practice and frequent internal and external training.
The learning environment both indoors and outdoors enables children to be motivated and interested throughout.
Healthy eating is fully encouraged and the children grow vegetables to eat and collect eggs. All meals are cooked on the premises using fresh ingredients and children contribute to this by making bread each day.
