I have had various babysitting and childcare experience starting at age 13. Along with babysitting children of all ages and personalities, I also have three younger brothers. My youngest brother was born when I was 13 years old and, I am proud to say, my caring for him earned me the family nickname 'little mommy'.

Full-time hours

My name is Megan. I graduated from high school last year (2015). Some of my strengths as a caregiver include cooking, discipline (firm, but not aggressive), including all of the children, catering to each child's interests/needs, homework help (if applicable), multi-tasking, fun, creative activities that don't involve technology, calming an upset child, and I have a watchful eye. I have the most experience with ages 2+, but I am still very experienced with about 6 months to 2 years. I love children, and every child I have cared for has loved me.
