Megan’s Bio

I have a master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education, and currently work for the Westbrook School Department. Before moving to Maine, I lived and taught in Washington, DC for four years. I worked with preschool and kindergarten students at a public elementary school, as well as with infants and toddlers at the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center.

I am reliable, patient, and compassionate. I set appropriate limits and help children communicate when disagreements arise. I encourage routines and learning through play. Overall, I am really a kid at heart - I love playing games, reading picture books, and watching Disney movies as much as they do!

I work full-time during the school year, and primarily look for babysitting opportunities during July and August. I live in Portland, but am happy to travel anywhere between Portsmouth and Boothbay. If you are on vacation, or in town for a wedding, I would love to help with your child care needs.

Megan is a fabulous babysitter! She has a tremendous amount of experience with children, and is extremely reliable and trustworthy. When Megan is home (or at the playground or museum) with my young children, my husband and I have complete peace of mind.

It was the first time I had to leave my 2 1/2 month old with a sitter and Megan did fabulous. I had tons of communication with her leading up to it and that definitely helps my nerves. She texted me which I was at the meeting saying everything was ok.She gave me a run down of how the time when I got back and I felt like she was a great choice to watch my little man :)

We can't say enough wonderful things about Megan. She was absolutely fantastic with our two kids, ages 2 years and 5 months. We traveled to Washington for a wedding, and we were able to enjoy the weekend events because we knew that the kids were having fun with her at the hotel. We give her our highest recommendation and only wish that we lived in Washington, so that we could use her again!

Megan is the BEST!!!

Megan is by far the best temp nanny I've ever hired. She worked with us in July 2017 while we were in Portsmouth for my sisters wedding for 4 days. From our first conversation before we arrived, you could tell that she was a caring and intelligent person. But wow, when we met her I was seriously impressed. My children both took an instant liking to her (22 months & 4.5 years old). She was very responsible and went way beyond what was expected. She had a great balance of fun and creativity, while still being able to discipline the kids when needed and keep them on their schedule.

Not only did she take great care of our children while we were there, she also helped us out by loaning us toys for the kids to play with while we were in town as well as a Pack n' Play for my son to sleep in. She also drove our kids back from evening dinners so we could stay out, attended the wedding ceremony to help out with the kids and even did some grocery shopping for us!

I only wish she lived in California so I could use her more!!!
