Margaret’s Bio

Hi! My name is Peggy, and I am a mother of a soon-to-be 5-year-old. I've always loved children and taking care of them, and I took two child development courses in high school because of it. Growing up, I was babysitter to my six cousins (three at a time!) aging from 2 months to 14 years. All of my cousins are older now (12-19), but my son's father's family has children aged 4 to 14 that I babysit occasionally. I love to watch children learn, and to see what makes them tic. I think that the world through an child's eyes is an amazing thing!

One of my cousin's has asperger's syndrome, and another child I babysit has severe ADHD, so I have experience with children with special needs. I also was part of a small group brought together to aid a classmate of mine who had asperger's syndrome adapt himself better to social situations.

I also have worked at Guppies to Puppies in Old Saybrook for the past three years, so you might have seen me (and maybe my son!) in there. I love animals of all sorts, and have experience taking care of most of them, so let me know if I can help with your pets at all!

I DO take my son with me to babysit. He's a fairly calm child for his age, shy for 5 minutes, but then very friendly. He adores being with other children, and when we take care of babies he becomes my "helper." He never gets special treatment, and he's used to me babysitting other children while he's there.

I have nearly 100% availability on weekdays, and although my weekend availability isn't listed on here, I CAN work the occasional weekend day. I would just need a week or two notice :)
