“It's great to hear that the kids had a great afternoon because of you, and when the parents ask you when you'll be back again.”
- Luna (23)
“You learn so much from children! They are always honest and every babysitting service is different. That makes babysitting challenging, but it also makes me more creative and resourceful.”
- Adina (40)
''Children are naturally very curious and adventurous. I also often try to think of things to do with them. That is why babysitting is never boring!”
What is a job as a babysitter like?
Do you have the required babysitting experience and do you love going on adventures with the kids? Then we are looking for you! We would love to get you in touch with some great families near you. Every babysitting service is different. Are you babysitting during the day? Then you'll pick the kids up from school, for example, help them with their homework, or take them outside to play. With an evening babysitting service, you'll often help the kids get ready for bed after dinner and will then have some time to yourself while they're sleeping: you could do some studying, read, or watch tv. Whether you want to babysit for the same family on fixed days, or prefer to babysit for different families, with a Charly Cares babysitting job anything is possible. Working as a babysitter gives so much freedom: you decide when and where you want to babysit. Easy to combine with changing (school) schedules, so the perfect part-time job!

- Is everything in order? Then you're ready to go! You can now use our app to search for fun babysitting services and start working as a babysitter.
The benefits of a babysitting job at Charly Cares
You can decide for yourself what your babysitting work will look like: for example, fixed weekdays, multiple days for different families, or the occasional night out. You choose how much you earn and also get to learn and grow as you do so. By working as a babysitter, you'll learn to develop your communicative skills and become more independent and responsible. Those are skills you will always carry with you! Also convenient: everything is arranged through the app. For example, you'll be automatically paid after each babysitting service.
Oh, and pssst... A part-time job as a babysitter also means you have a great reason for some old-fashioned dressing up, or to watch your favourite Disney film. Sounds great, right?

Because you are in charge of deciding when you work, it is important to keep your calendar up to date, so that you don't receive booking requests for days or times that you are not available. You can block your Angel calendar for a longer period too, in case you are planning on going on vacation or for your exam period.
