Easy peasy: all you have to do is create an account on Charly Cares, fill in the date/ dates on which you need a babysitter, indicate your wishes, and we will show you the matching Babysitting Angels. Then you can choose the Angel that suits you and your family best. A tip from us: always ask your babysitter to come a little early or schedule a date to get to know each other beforehand. That way you can already get used to each other.

Discover Charly Cares

From little to big

Our Babysitting Angels can take care of both babies and older children. In their profiles you can check their experiences. Is having a driver’s licence a must for your babysitter? You can select on that. The babysitters can also cook for you (how great is that?) of pick up the kids from school. Does your eldest need to go to hockey practise? No problem, it is taken care off. It’s never been easier!

Reliable

Alright, finding a babysitter, that will be fine. But you might be wondering: what about reliability? A good and legitimate question. We always meet all Babysitting Angles who sign up at Charly Cares. Also, the Angel does the iDIN check and provides references from previous babysitting families. They are also reviewed after each babysitting service. We keep track of that.

Babysitter rates

In your search for a babysitter, you're probably also curious about rates. At Charly Cares we offer a membership, in addition to which you pay the hourly rate of the Angel. A distinction is made between daytime and evening rates. More about the rates can be found on this page.

Frequently asked questions about a wanted babysitter

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.
