Hi there!

My name is Meghan and I am a full time single mother to a toddler and am looking for an occasional babysitter.

I am in the midst of running my own business and I need a babysitter to handle my son while I get some work done. I will usually be home in the house with you but will need the time to myself.

My son is very hands on and loves to play

with his toys, draw, read books and loves if you will play with him.

Occasionally I may be interested in a sitter who is available late in the evening on weekends.

I would prefer if you have your license and vehicle or access to one.

Important Information

Occasional child care requires a specific mindset. It's being comfortable and confident to step in and help a family from time to time and manage the adjustment particularly younger kids face to parents not being around.

Its important to create a safe, caring, nurturing and stimulating experience. A great babysitter from the kids perspective is someone who is fun, loves to play, sing, run and do creative projects.

For a parent, it's all of the above, but also meal preparation for the kids, keeping the children’s areas neat and tidy, helping older kids with homework and being able to respect rules around discipline, nap / bed time and process.
