Personal check

Charly Cares' babysitters are screened personally

Good to know: we personally check each Babysitting Angel. The Angel fills out information about herself, does the iDIN check and provides references. We check all this and ask for more information if necessary. That way we know exactly who we're dealing with.

Frequently asked questions about a babysitter in Utrecht

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.

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.

What are the costs of a babysitting service?

Angels are able to choose their own hourly rate, so it can be different per Angel. The hourly rate varies between approximately €7 and €15 per hour.

You also pay the subscription costs and booking costs. The subscription is €13.99 per month and the booking fee is €1.99 per booking.

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.
