To become a First Steps Sitter or Nanny, please complete the application below.

This submitted application will be turned into your Profile upon acceptance to be seen by First Steps families when awarded a job or if being considered for a nanny position. Please be detailed, and highlight your childcare experience. In addition, please provide at least two childcare specific references (this is not a family member, friend or other sitter/nanny who referred you). These references will be contacted and must provide a reply prior to your interview with a First Steps representative. Please notify your references that a First Steps representative will be contacting them in order to expedite the process.

Your resume does not have to be childcare specific, but if you are seeking a part-time or full-time nanny position, a childcare resume is best. If uploading a professional resume, please provide plenty of childcare experience details where prompted.

Once your application has been submitted, you will be directed to a confirmation page and receive a confirmation email to the email address you provide. If for some reason you do not receive confirmation, your application may not have been received. Please contact with any application submission issues. Thank you!
