Parents in The Hague! Are you looking for a nice and reliable babysitter for your kids and you don't always want to ask your family members. Angels to the rescue! The Nanny Angels at Charly Cares are ready for you and your family. They see 'caring' as their great passion and let you go out the door feeling confident. We'd love to tell you more...

  • Personally Angels

  • Ratings & reviews after every service

  • Flexible Babysitting Angels

This is how we ensure reliability

You may be wondering, 'So how do you check Angels?' Good question, and quite rightly so! Booking a babysitter for the first time is quite something. But rest assured, we do a lot to ensure reliability.

  • Before Angels apply, they provide references from previous nanny families and do the iDIN check for personal data.

  • They also tell a little more about their personality and motivation, after which they are personally checked by a Charly Cares recruiter.

  • Only then are they given access to our platform. But even then we keep an eye on quality by asking the parent for a rating & review after each babysitting service.

Founder Charly about our Babysitting Angels

"Hi parents in The Hague! I'm Charly, founder of Charly Cares. As a mother of 2 girls, Olivia and Valentina, 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 like PABO, Pedagogy or other care-oriented studies. Real Angels, if you ask me!"

Reviews from parents from The Hague!

Jean from 's-Gravenhage

“Loes was the first babysitter we used when we arrived in NL 5.5 years ago and she is always my first choice. The kids love her, she’s reliable, we have clear communication and she always arrives with a backpack stuffed with possible options for the kids to do. She’s a winner.”

Misty from 's-Gravenhage

Frequently asked questions about a babysitter in The Hague

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 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.

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.
