Hart van Nederland mentions Charly Cares: the closure of primary schools causes a rush on babysitters at online platform.
Founder Charly van der Straten responds: "The rush is definitely there. We saw the number of bookings increase four times compared to last week. The customer service phone is ringing off the hook.”
Not only parents are calling for a babysitter, but employers too want to offer a solution. Charly explains: "They do so because they want to prevent people from being stuck at home without childcare. Some employers even want to offer a babysitter as a fringe benefit.”
