Each First Steps member – parents and sitters alike – goes through a multi-level application process to ensure the best fit for everyone. Most importantly, potential members meet face-to-face with a First Steps representative. All families have a home visit while sitters have an interview. Why? Technology is great, but there are just some things people will always do better – especially when it comes to the care of children.
Our sitters are better. Each sitter is college educated and otherwise professional. We seek individuals who love children, have good experience and are looking to supplement their income during free time. Our sitters have regular 9-5’s, flexible positions or are currently in transition. Has the economy caused some changes in your life? Join First Steps to sit in the meantime and meet other area professionals while you look for something new.
First Steps is more affordable too. Parents, pay just once per year to be a member of First Steps. Join for a first year enrollment fee of $249.99 – ($149.99 annually thereafter, auto-billed) – with no additional placement fees or hidden costs. Use First Steps as much or as little as you’d like, and build your own relationships, with zero additional transactions. Sitters, join First Steps for a one-time fee of just $39.99 to cover the cost of your background check ($19.99 annually thereafter, auto-billed) and you, too, may use it as much or as little as you’d like.
