What does our screening entail?
Resume & background experience
During the face-to-face interview, subjects such as resume, (study)background, babysitting experience and motivation will be discussed. It is therefore an absolute must that the Angel has previous babysitting experience, so we can contact their references immediately.
Personality and motivation
All backgrounds and motivations are welcome with Charly Cares; however, we are strict in our first selection. We value integrity and trustworthiness in our babysitters. We also expect a Babysitting Angel to be proactive, social and representative.
References will be discussed during the interview, but we also always ask the Angel to be to text/app at least one reference. The reference will then rate the Angel and write a review. We will check the reference(s) before the Angel can start babysitting.
Our Babysitting Angels’ babysitting experience
As a babysitter, you will experience day shifts, but also evening- and even night shifts. Of course, every Babysitting Angel will indicate what they prefer, but the Babysitting Angel should at least be capable of babysitting during the day and have at least 2 years of experience doing that. During the day is when kids are often most active and therefore need more attention and care.
Babysitting Angels are only allowed to babysit new-borns if they have sufficient baby-experience. Makes sense, because watching a baby is quite different, as you cannot always communicate very well. We differentiate between Newborn (0-6 months); Baby (6-12 months) and Toddler (12-24 months). During the screening, we will ask some extra questions and carefully look at experience with, for example, bottle-feeding, calming down the child, sleep schedules and changing diapers. Only Babysitting Angels with specific experience will be matched with families with new-borns.
The Pro-icon (extra experienced babysitter)
Our babysitters all love (to take care of) kids. They find it fun and view babysitting as a great and grateful means to earn some extra money.
Angels who, besides their required experience, also have followed or completed a child/care-related education, will have the Pro icon added to their profile. Think of study programs such as pabo, pedagogy or medicine, but also if Angels have worked at a day-care or have been an au pair.

But it is not just screening
As we said before: trustworthiness and transparency are of paramount importance to us. This is why we ask parents to provide a star rating after each babysitting service.
You can also choose to write a review about the Babysitting Angel and the babysitting service. Of course, this description is more detailed than a rating, which can be great for the next family and the Angel him- or herself. But that’s up to you! Both the rating and the review can be changed at any time. This way, we can create a safe and transparent environment.
