I started childcare when I was 9 years old. My parents decided to join Partnership for Strong Families as a foster family. I was always the older child so all the children we had were younger than me by several years. We had multiple children in the household at a time. I would help my mom by changing diapers, bathing, helping potty train and dressing. Most importantly I played with them, connected with them and bonded. As I got a little bit older, I started taking on childcare jobs. I've worked with every age from 3 months to 17 years with nothing but success. I can also provide references.

I am the oldest of seven kids, and I've always enjoyed the busy, fast-paced life that comes with it. I've spent a good portion of my life babysitting, tutoring kids, driving kids to and from school, practice, etc. and it's decidedly what I want to do with my life. I babysit weakly for multiple people and I'm hoping to expand that and become a live in nanny.

Hey! My name is Lizzie, I’m 28 and I live in Lake City. I have 3 kids...Ethan, almost 8, Charlee, 6, and my baby girl is almost 7 mos. I’ve been taking care of children my whole life and I love it! Ideally I would love if your child/children could come to my house but I would also be willing to come to yours while my older two are in school. I’m a VERY cautious driver so I can assure you your kids would be safe if we ever had to go anywhere! Please message me if you have any questions!
