Take a look at what satisfied First Steps clients have to say!
This service is really a great find. Every sitter I’ve gotten has been prompt, professional and trustworthy (and of course great with my baby). And Quinn, the owner, is exceptional! She does an excellent job pairing you with a sitter that best suits your needs, and she responds to your request immediately so you know she is working on it. She’s found me somebody for even a same day notice afternoon job! I will recommend this service to everyone I know with children. Once you sign up and and start using the service, it saves you time and you value it for sure! Excellent company!
Just wanted to thank you so much for what you do. I can’t tell you how happy I am I found you! All of the sitters we’ve had have been great with our daughters… very professional, patient and kind. Before finding your company, I hated having to find a new sitter; the whole process took forever to find someone I was really happy with. Now I don’t hesitate to send you a request because I know I can trust you.
Being far away from family, finding someone to occasionally care for our young son felt overwhelming. However, through the recommendation of our neighbor, I reluctantly contacted Quinn at First Steps Network. I am so happy I did. The process was easy and the results have put our minds at ease. We’ve now used a couple sitters and felt comfortable leaving our son with each of them. After a year, we are finally able to have an enjoyable, worry-free, child-free night out.
The best money we’ve ever spent! As we don’t have family nearby, First Steps has changed the way we find and hire babysitters. I can’t recommend them enough!
I no longer worry about making plans because of worrying about babysitter availability, and I don’t have to compete with my friends for the best one. We have found several “go to” sitters who we always call first, but if they aren’t available, or we need something last minute, First Steps has always been able to provide someone for us – great, friendly, reliable sitters. We’ve even found sitters for our dogs on a couple of occasions. Thank you!
Quinn and her team of sitters are fantastic! We have used this service since our twin daughters were about 6 months old and couldn’t be happier with our decision. Being new parents, and living away from family, we were at a loss as to how to find sitters who we would feel comfortable leaving our children with. First Steps was recommended to us by friends and we have used it ever since. We have always felt very comfortable that the sitters we have gotten – wonderful with our children (and dog) and as other reviews also said – prompt, professional and trustworthy. My husband and I know when we go out that our daughters are being well taken care of. We have some wonderful sitters that our girls absolutely love but when they aren’t available I never hesitate to reach out because I know Quinn’s network of sitters are all well qualified and kind. I highly recommend it to all my friends!
We absolutely recommend First Steps! All sitters have background checks and are personally interviewed by the company. We’ve been very pleased and comfortable with the sitters and impressed by their resumes. The Founder does a fantastic job pairing sitters and parents!
I have to say I have been so impressed with all the young ladies that have babysat for us. Even though we’ve had a different girl each time, they have been lovely. What a blessing this service is to moms like me who move here and don’t know anyone. It definitely takes all my fears away from having a first time sitter.
We’ve used over a dozen sitters from Quinn’s service and in every instance they are mature, responsible and our children have always had a positive experience. We’ve always found a sitter, even on short notice, and never have any reservations trusting them with the two most important people in our lives.
First Steps has provided our family with high-quality and capable caregivers for the past 2 years. The sitters are professional and personable and put my kids at ease almost immediately after walking through our door. I’ve relied on First Steps regularly and am grateful that I have a dependable service that I can trust.
I have complete trust in all the sitters I have used with First Steps. I never hesitate to leave my newborn with anyone from First Steps.
It is so easy. Now I can hire a sitter for date night with just one email!
When getting married in Nov. 2009, I faced a dilemma many brides-to-be are familiar with: to invite or not invite…. children, that is! While we love children, we chose to have an adult-only event. Still, I didn’t want to ostracize friends with children or make it difficult for out-of-town guests to attend just because they did not have a sitter. Thank goodness for Quinn Fordham and First Steps! I was able to provide sitters for numerous guests — for children as young as 3 months and on up! My friends and relatives were able to connect with their individual sitter prior to the wedding weekend, and I heard nothing but rave reviews about each sitter from every person who had one. It would have been impossible for me to find multiple sitters and manage that process leading up to my wedding – but First Steps made everyone happy!
Quinn and First Steps have bailed us out with sitters in a jam more times than I can count! She always finds us a fantastic sitter who I trust with my girls. The process is quick and so easy which is huge for a busy mom. Her service is invaluable.
