Invite your own babysitter to Charly Cares

Do you have a great and trusted babysitter outside of Charly Cares who you would like to add to the Charly Cares Babysitting App? In just a few steps, you can easily register this babysitter with our babysitting service. That way you can still use our service, even if we are not yet active in your area.

Step 1: Invite your babysitter

In the app, go to ‘Profile’ > ‘Invite own babysitter’ and share your personal link via text message, WhatsApp, or email. Your babysitter can sign up using this link. Note: the babysitter does not yet have to register or schedule an interview.

Step 2: Share the code with your babysitter

Share the personal code with your babysitter. The babysitter needs to enter the code when registering or can enter the code manually in the app under ‘Profile’ > ‘Connect to family’. Note: the babysitter will only be available to your family and can therefore only be booked by you.

Does the babysitter need help? No worries, we are happy to help. We explain the steps here.

Step 3: Discuss the hourly rate

Before making a booking, make sure that the hourly rate is set correctly. If necessary, take the Angel fee* into account. The babysitter can adjust the hourly rate in the app under settings.

* 3% of the earnings of the babysitter will be withheld (Angel fee). With this amount we ensure that all our babysitters can use our Babysitting App for free and that a Support Team is always there for them.

The babysitter can add your unique code when registering. They will then be able to create a profile, after which you will be able to book them. Therefore make sure that your babysitter has received the code before they want to register.

I want to make a booking, but I get the message 'almost sent'.

Before you can make a booking, you must have an active membership and link a payment method. After you have done so, you can complete the booking.

My employer is paying, why do I need a membership?

Every parent at Charly Cares needs a membership in order to be able to book. The first month of the flexible membership is free; after the initial month, the monthly costs are always charged to the parent. Contact your employer to check if they have any internal arrangement for that. Both the babysitter and the booking fee are paid using the credit from your employer.

You are responsible for cancelling the membership, which you can do immediately. If you do not cancel the membership in time, the costs for the flexible membership will be charged.

The benefits of a membership:

  • A support team is always available to help with questions and potential problems.
  • The Babysitting Angels are personally screened, including a reference check.
  • From booking to paying the babysitter, everything is arranged in the app.
