Babysitter needed

Just became mom or dad? Congratulations! Immense joy, but how are you going to handle things when you’re not with your little one all the time anymore? When your leave ends and you have to go back to work? Or when you want to plan a date night with your partner?

Exactly, a babysitter can be the perfect solution! But, you don’t want to entrust your child to just anyone. That’s where we come in! Charly Cares has many trusted, lovely babysitters, who will meet your exact needs. Okay, we can hear you say, but isn’t a babysitter different from a childminder?

Babysitter at home

Ideally, you would like someone to babysit at your home, in your own safe environment. But when it concerns a newborn, it would be an advantage if the Babysitting Angel has experience with newborns. When you create your profile, you can also indicate your preferences. In that case, experience with newborns is an absolute must. If an Angel has babysitting experience with newborns, it will be indicated in the Angel’s profile. That way, you never have to doubt whether or not your child is in good hands.

One off babysitting or return bookings?

Charly Cares offers Fixed, After school, Flexible and Last Minute Babysitting Angels, so you can always find someone. A tip from us: create a pool with several babysitters, so you can always be sure of your babysitters. Another tip: always meet up with the babysitter beforehand, so you can get to know them and explain your baby’s schedule. Our Babysitting Angels don’t mind at all and actually prefer this! That way, they are well-prepared to take care of your little one. How nice!

Trustworthiness of the babysitter

I think you know almost everything now! But, the most important thing might be: how trustworthy is my babysitter? After all, you are leaving a little, vulnerable baby behind! And that can be quite a big step for many parents. No worries, we personally meet all the Babysitting Angels that sign up. In the interview we discuss the motivation, background information, experiences and state their references. Afterwards, you can use the star rating to rate the babysitter. You can also write a review. This is how we create optimal transparency which is great for you, for us, and for the babysitter. If you think something didn’t go quite as you wanted, you should let us know immediately and we will take care of it. We aim for you to always be satisfied with our service.

Babysitter rates

Yes, you have finally found a great babysitter, but ehm, what about the rates and payments? Very simple. We offer three subscription packages: one for if you need a babysitter once a month, one for parents who occasionally need a Babysitting Angel, and one for parents who need a Babysitting Angel more often or on a regular basis. The rate of the Angel is dependent on, for example, experience and the time of the booking. Then, about the payment: as soon as the babysitter crosses your threshold, the timer will automatically be started in the app. When you come back home, you have to stop the timer. You will then see the amount that will automatically be transferred from your bank account. Very convenient! This eliminates any cash and change hassle.
