About Me


Sarah Hamed I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and a qualified Early Years Professional. I am also a mother to 3 fantastic girls; my eldest two work with me as a childcare helper and a registered assistant during school holidays. My husband works full time but is also a registered assistant and works with me after school and on his days off! I currently care for lots of little people...and they are all absolutely amazing! Our regular routine means we spend lots of time outdoors enjoying all nature has to offer throughout the changing seasons. We are regular visitors to the wonderful Washington Wetlands Centre, local parks, woodlands and farm which means my charming charges become familiar with their local wildlife and community. There is no other job in the world that I would rather be doing...I LOVE my job!
