A little bit about me…

Hello! I'm Megan.

I have years of childcare experience and an energetic personality! I am a big kid at heart. I am looking to help a family who is needing part time hours or live in help. I have an MA, years of special need care (autism) and a big heart. Not even a speeding ticket (knock on wood!).

If your child loves pooh or dinosaurs, then we have alot to talk about!

I have experience in homeschooling, the arts and love to create! I am someone you can leave your children with and know that I will protect them with my life; but also a gentle soul who loves to play in the floor and read bedtime stories. I have worked for children over the years in all age groups, including special needs. I am looking to start working as soon as possible.

I offer meal prep, transportation, educational activities, light housekeeping, errands and pet care. But most of all I offer peace of mind!


I hope to hear from you soon!

"Megan worked with our kids for two years. She always came with tons of activities and immediately made my children the center of attention. She always prepared the best lunches and helped us with anything we asked for. My kids loved her! Every time I needed to text her, she replied within a few minutes and was happy to help. I cannot think of a kinder person. She had experience with autism, so it was incredible to find someone who knew how to interact with my son. My daughter loved playing dress up with her and going to the park! Megan is very trustworthy and kind. Any family is lucky to have her!"

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Hickory, NC

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Hickory can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Hickory Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in North Carolina?
  • Do you have a North Carolina driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
