How we guarantee the quality of our Angels

  • Babysitting experience

    When a new Angel applies, she must provide 2 references from families where she has babysat before. This way, we check the experience and love to hear how the babysitting families describe her!

  • Personal check

    In addition to the mandatory iDIN check on their personal data, a Charly Cares recruiter always does a personal check to learn more about the experience and motivation of the Babysitting Angel

  • Rating & review

    After each babysitting service, the parent fills out a rating & review to rate the Babysitting Angel. We continuously monitor these in our office. In case of a rating lower than 4 stars, we obviously intervene. The reviews are also transparent to you!

Founder Charly about our Babysitting Angels

"Hi moms & dads in Amsterdam! I'm Charly, founder of Charly Cares. As a mother of Olivia (and a second on the way) I know very well how important it is to have a nice and reliable babysitter in your home. That's why I value the personal check. I am proud of the fact that we have so many Angels with years of experience, who are following or have followed studies in the direction of PABO, Pedagogy or other care-oriented studies. Real Angels, if you ask me!"

How it works in the app:

  • Enter the date and time for when you need a babysitter and you will see the Angels near you. Select your favorite Angels, but also put your request on Jobboard: this is a kind of bulletin board where Angels can offer themselves for your booking.

  • Arrange everything through the app: from making the booking, chatting with your Angel and payout. Ideal!

Frequently asked questions about babysitters in Amsterdam

How do I pay the Angel?

The payment through the app works as follows: when the Angel is at your home, a timer will automatically start, and upon their departure, you stop the timer. Then, you check the times for accuracy and choose whether to pay the Angel privately or through your business (if your employer reimburses for babysitting expenses). If you are paying personally, you can, after consulting with the visiting Angel, choose a payment method:

  1. iDeal: Arrange the payment through your bank app. The Angel will be paid within a day.
  2. Cash or via Tikkie: Arrange the payment directly with the Angel.
  3. Via direct debit: You don't need to do anything else; Charly Cares will debit the amount from your account within 2 working days and pay the Angel after 4 working days.

Note! For a Pet Care booking, a fixed rate applies to that booking. The timer will automatically stop, and you don't need to take any further action. The same applies to a Senior Care booking; the timer will be automatically stopped. Both Pet and Senior Care payments are processed through direct debit.

How do I book a Babysitting Angel?

Easy peasy! In our app, go to 'Discover' > 'Book an Angel'. Enter the dates and times for which you need a babysitter. You will then be able to either select 10 Angels yourself, or post your request on Jobboard.

Selecting 10 Angels yourself? Write a personal message and send the request, then wait for the Angels to respond. If one of them accepts, your request is successful.

If you choose Jobboard, write a personal message and post your request to Jobboard. All Angels near you will be able to see your request and respond. In the end, you decide who ends up babysitting.

What is the hourly rate of a babysitter?

Angels are able to choose their own hourly rate, so it can be different per Angel. The hourly rate varies between approximately €7 and €20 per hour.

Are all Angels screened and what does the screening entail?

Before an Angel can start babysitting via Charly Cares, we meet the Angel personally. 2 references are also checked at first. During the meeting, we dive into motivation, experience and personality. But ultimately, it is up to parent and Angel to judge whether there is a good match between the two parties. We therefore recommend a personal introductory meeting before the Angel comes to babysit.
