Sarah Hamilton

Sarah graduated from Acadia University with a Bachelor of Arts degree and continued her studies at St Joseph’s College of Early Childhood Education (now known as the Nova Scotia College of Early Childhood Education) with a diploma in Early Childhood Education (ECE). She has worked in the field with all age groups since graduation. In 2011 Sarah joined the Willowbrae family (Burnside location) as a preschool teacher and in 2016 moved to the Timberlea location and obtained the Assistant Director role. Sarah believes in the importance of early childhood education and that the foundations of learning for young children starts in the early year. She enjoys working with all children and staff on a daily basis, as building relationships is key in supporting growth and development of every child, through quality programming. She believes in the power of genuine and responsive care giving to ensure secure attachments as children navigate the world. In her free time Sarah enjoys spending time with her family, taking her children out into nature, exploring the local parks and campgrounds. She also enjoys experimenting in the kitchen with new cooking and baking recipes. Sarah is excited to continue her adventure with her Willowbrae family, surrounded by an amazing team and all the wonderful children and families in Timberlea.
