Parents and Sitters. Connected.
First Steps Network of Atlanta has developed a rigorous and thorough screening process to connect capable childcare providers with families. Our network is trusted by thousands of members throughout Metro Atlanta.
Why Parents Choose First Steps?
Think about First Steps as a networking tool.
First Steps makes connections easier and does not “employ” providers. When you sign up, you become a member and may use First Steps as often as you like. First Steps does not prohibit members from contacting one another at anytime, directly, outside of the network. We stand by our model as the easiest way to find an available sitter at anytime – especially last minute. We strive to make the process of securing childcare easier, better and faster!
