Meg’s Bio

Hi! I'm Meaghan McCarthy and I have been babysitting since I was 13. I've always been a nurturing person who is capable to seeing to the needs of others in addition to my own.
I am a goal oriented person with passion and ambition, which helps to me being a good role-model for children. I actually have my Masters degree in Sport Psychology and I am trying to build my own private practice. Unfortunately such an ambition doesn't pay the bills immediately, so I use childcare as a means to supplement my income.  In my sport psychology experience I have worked with nearly 150 youth athletes, helping them to be more confident, focused, positive, goal-achievers. I'm very supportive and I know how to listen and understand each individual's needs. I look to bring those same qualities when I care for children. 
In addition to being a super supportive, compassionate, educated person, I am highly creative. I can't tell you the number of games or activities I have created in the moment to engage, entertain, and educate children. I do all sorts of arts and crafts that I am able to adapt to a child's stage of development. I also love to run and play outside, go on walks, and other adventures. I love laughter and aim to keep children as happy as possible. Safety though is my biggest priority and I would rather a child be upset at me than allow them to do something that has the potential for danger. I am first aid and CPR certified and am happy to have not needed to use anything more than the occasional neosporin and band-aid. 
I believe on being on the same page of parents because consistency is so important for children. I communicate openly with parents and will ask questions regarding how they would like something handled. 
Above all else, I am patient. From meltdowns to tantrums to telling a child 8 times to pick up their toys, it is all a part of development.
So if you are looking for an awesome childcare provider, drop me line and I'd be happy to talk with you.
