I want a babysitter

This is how we check the reliability

  • When a new Angel signs up, she must provide 2 references from families she has babysat for before

  • In addition to the mandatory iDIN check on their personal information, we always conduct a personal check to learn more about the experience and motivation of the Babysitting Angel

  • After each babysitting service, the parent fills in a rating & review to evaluate the Babysitter Angel. We continuously monitor these at our office. If a rating is lower than 4 stars, we intervene, of course.

  • Reviews from other parents are always visible to you as a parent, providing a safe feeling!

Founder Charly about the Angels on the platform

"Hi parents in Nijmegen! I'm Charly, founder of Charly Cares. As a mother of Olivia (and a second kid on the way), 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 sitter for your pet. Discover the possibilities of Senior Care and Pet Care at Charly Cares.

Frequently asked questions about a babysitter in Nijmegen

In what bookings can I expect travel expenses for an Angel?

Do you live further away from a city and see few Angels when you make a booking? Then you can add a travel fee when you post your booking on Jobboard. This makes the booking a lot more attractive to an Angel who lives a little further away. The Angel sees the reimbursement right away with your request.

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 exactly does Jobboard work?

You can think of Jobboard as the old-fashioned bulletin board in the supermarket, where you put up a note if you're looking for a babysitter. Jobboard works the same way and is a kind of bulletin board for our Babysitter Angels, where they can see job posts from parents.

There are 2 ways to make a booking request, either way, you can use Jobboard.

Option 1

  • Select the date and time you need a babysitter.
  • Select the Angels you would like to book. Use all the handy filters to do this!
  • The 'place on jobboard' slider is automatically on (you can turn it off), we recommend leaving it on for a higher success rate.
  • Your selected Angels can respond to your application. At the same time, Angels through Jobboard can respond.
  • You will receive all proposals and accept the proposal from your favorite Angel.

Option 2 (In areas surrounding cities)

  • Select the date and time you need a babysitter.
  • Post the call directly on Jobboard (note: you will not select your favorite Angels).
  • Angels who match your preferences can respond to your request via Jobboard.
  • You will receive all proposals and accept the proposal from your favorite Angel.

You can also reject the proposal. Your booking request does not disappear from Jobboard. You have 6 hours to respond to proposals from Angels.

Good to know
- Angels who do not fully meet your requirements can also respond to your request on Jobboard.

- When you invite an Angel and they subsequently accept the offer, they become the Angel on the booking. When an Angel makes an offer on your booking, you still have to accept it.
