Our team are well qualified and experienced nursery practitioners, who continue with their professional development at Little Red Hen; ensuring that they are up-to-date with relevant legislation, practical and theoretical training so that standards, knowledge and skill sets are implemented and maintained around the nurseries.


Our Founder

Little Red Hen Day Nurseries Ltd is a family run business created by Beverley Holt, owner and mother of two; who grew the business by applying her strong administration skills and parenting values into a humble but very high quality child minding operation; which became very successful and much sought after within the local community.

The child minding business evolved into the Florence Avenue nursery in September 2007, which soon required larger premises as demand for places continually increased; and so the Grove park nursery was founded in September 2009. Since then, our registered number of childcare places has increased from 30 to 90, as additional space has been taken on and word of mouth recommendations continue to encourage new families to join us.

I am always looking for continual improvement to the children’s welfare and enjoyment; as well as our practice, resources, experiences and outcomes around the nursery and business

Ofsted say:

• Children are happy and settled in the setting. They eagerly take part in activities and experiences that promote all areas of their development. Staff work well together and form excellent partnerships with parents to support children’s well-being in the nursery. The owner/manager demonstrates a desire to provide high quality childcare and has effective systems in place to monitor and move the provision forward. This ensures positive outcomes for children are promoted.
• Children flourish in this stimulating and calm environment. All staff know the children exceptionally well and are aware of their individual needs and preferences.
