Ready to find the perfect caregiver for your family? Family First is ready to help you, through what we refer to as our “family process!” This process is simple on your end but thorough on ours. Whether it’s your first time finding a caregiver, or you’ve been on the search for a while, we’ll make the journey as stress-free as possible. We’re not interested in finding you any fit, we’re interested in finding you the perfect fit.
Step 1: Click the “Inquire” button below
This button will take you to our on-line questionnaire. The more detailed your answers, the better equipped our team will be in assessing your child-care needs and goals. Plus, it preps us for step two!
Step 2: The Follow-Up Call
Like we said, we’re thorough! We’ll want to make sure we cover any additional questions, or follow-up concerns regarding your submitted questionnaire. This is a great time to let us know about any bits of info you may have forgotten or were not able to include in the submitted form.
Step 3: In-Home Visit (Skype Optional)
We highly recommend scheduling an in-home visit if possible, but we are more than happy to conduct this part of the process via Skype. The face-to-face meeting helps us formulate the best solutions and determine how we can assist you in your customized child-care needs. There’s no cost for this visit; this is about familiarizing you with our team and service so that you can make an educated decision to move forward.
Step 4: Let the Search Begin
Based on the information we’ve gathered through our communication with you, we’ll begin the search for your perfect nanny or manny. Each child-care professional employed within our agency has undergone a thorough vetting process which includes a detailed application, multiple interviews and an extensive background check. We personally contact three professional references and a character reference and utilize a highly regarded company to conduct a background check.
Step 5: Choose Your Candidates
We’ll supply you with a list of child-care professionals whose backgrounds, experience, specialties and temperaments pair perfectly with your family’s needs. We’ll leave the final decision up to you of course. We know this is a big decision, so feel free to take your time perusing through their detailed profiles we supply. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at any time.
Step 6: Get Your Interview Questions Ready
After you’ve selected your top choices, it’s time to begin those face-to-face interviews in order to find the perfect nanny or manny with whom you and your family will truly connect! Our team can help you make that first communication and facilitate scheduling.
Step 7: Make Your Hire
When you know you’ve found the perfect fit, simply let our team know. We’ll begin the hiring process and supply you with a contract template. The template lets you customize the expectations of the position (duties, scheduling, payment etc.) so there’s no confusion between you and your new hire.
Family First Nanny and Caregivers are committed to assisting you through, not just your search, but the continuing nanny/manny relationship. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our team at any time with questions or concerns.
