Meet Babysitting Angel Florine

Babysitter Angel Florine gives her opinion about babysitting as a job next to her study

“I think the best thing about babysitting via Charly Cares is the flexibility it offers. I'm currently quite busy with my studies, but because I mostly babysit at night, I have plenty of time during the day to study.”

How much will you earn with babysitting?

It's completely up to you! You choose how much you want to earn per hour, as well as which babysitting services to take on. Babysitting during the day is often more intense when it comes to tasks and responsibilities, meaning you can set your hourly rate higher. But babysitting at night is also great: while the children are in bed, you'll have time to study.

Babysitting Angel Isabelle on her hourly rate:
“I really like that I can choose my own hourly rate, so that I can keep control over how much I want to ask. I raise my rate every year by about €0,50-1 euro, so that it increases along with my age and experience.”

More on the interview

Does it matter how often I am available?

You decide yourself when you work and how many days or nights you are available. We do ask that you are available to babysit for at least half a year.

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.

How much will I earn as a Babysitting Angel?

As a Babysitting Angel, you are in charge of deciding how much you earn. The app will give you an indication based on your area and your age. You can always change your hourly rate within the predetermined limits. Want to change your rate to one that falls outside of these limits? Contact our Customer Care Team, they'll be able to help you out. There are 3 different rates, all of which you'll be able to change: the fixed rate, the flexible rate and the night rate You can find your rate in your profile in the app.

How will parents pay me after a babysitting service?

A timer will automatically start running at the scheduled start time of the booking. Parents can stop the timer when they come home. After the timer has been stopped, the payment will be automatically processed and you will be paid in 4 work days. You will receive your earnings in the bank account connected to your profile.
