  • Angels are required to pass the iDIN check, and we also conduct a personal check on their profile by asking about their experience and motivation.

  • As part of continuous monitoring, we ask parents to rate the babysitter and leave a rating & review. after each babysitting service. This way, we keep track of reliability and intervene where necessary.

Founder Charly about the Angels on the platform

"Hi parents in Groningen! I'm Charly, founder of Charly Cares. As a mother of 2 girls, Olivia and Valentina, I know how important it is to have a nice and reliable babysitter at home. That's why I attach great importance to the personal check. I am proud that we have so many Angels with years of experience, who are studying or have studied in the direction of PABO, Pedagogy, or other care-related courses. Real Angels, if you ask me!"

I want a babysitter

How does it work exactly?

  • Download the app, create a profile, and provide information about your family (a description, a clear photo).

  • You can immediately search for an Angel! Enter the date and time when you need a babysitter, and you'll see the Angels in your area.

  • Select your favorite Angels, but also post your request on the Jobboard: this is a kind of bulletin board where Angels can offer themselves for your booking.

  • Manage everything through the app: from making the booking, chatting with your Angel, to the payment. Ideal!

Extra services at Charly Cares: Senior Care & Pet Care

At Charly Cares, you can not only find a babysitter for your children, but you can also get help for an elderly person or arrange a babysitter for your pet. Discover the possibilities of Senior Care and Pet Care at Charly Cares.

Frequently asked questions about a babysitter in Groningen

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.

How do I stop the timer?

Only parents are able to stop the timer in the app. During the babysitting service, a timer should be immediately visible when opening the app. If that isn't the case, you can find the timer under 'Chat' in the app.

Angels are not able to stop the timer.

How do I find a fixed babysitter?

If you're looking for a babysitter for multiple days per week, we recommend inviting as many Angels as possible for the booking. Create the fixed babysitting reservation yourself, select as many Angels as you can, and post the booking on the Jobboard. This increases the chance lof a successful booking!

For bookings starting from September and lasting a longer period, we advise selecting multiple Angels for 1 to a maximum of 4 times and then discussing whether they can stay for an extended period. We have many students in our database, and they don't yet know their schedules for September in August. Additionally, our experience shows that bookings further in the future are less likely to succeed compared to those happening sooner.
