Meet Megan

My name is Megan Young and I am 21 years old. I will be a senior at the University of Iowa this fall and am pursuing a degree in elementary education. I have had a passion for caring for children for as long as I can remember and have experience with all age groups. I have experience in caring for infants and children with disabilities as well. I have been a nanny for several families, along with babysitting whenever I can. I was employed at ChildServe from 2014 to 2017 and worked with children on developmental and motor skills. I firmly believe that it is of the upmost importance to make each child feel safe and loved when they are in my care. I love working with children because the relationships that develop are so rewarding. I have a very flexible schedule and am willing to start immediately. I have Read more a reliable vehicle for transportation (2016 Mazda 3) and am willing to help out with light housekeeping when needed. I also have experience in meal preparation. I am comfortable with infants, children of all ages and all pets. I love to be creative and enjoy spending time outdoors. Please message me if you think we could be a good fit!
