What do you need in order to become a Babysitting Angel?

It is important that you meet several requirements before you will be able to babysit through Charly Cares. For example, it is paramount that you have relevant babysitting experience. This can be short and intense, such as experience as an au pair. Or if you have been an occasional babysitter, for example for acquaintances. Only experience with family is not enough. In addition, the following is a must-have:

  • Proactive, reliable, and communicatively skilled.

  • Affinity with children.

  • Experience with children of different ages.

The interview

During our interview, we'll get to know each other better. We will ask you several questions, but it is also time for you to ask us anything you want. The interview will take place on the phone. You will be able to choose an one-hour time slot.
