Fixed babysitter, three days a week

When you create a recurring booking request, you will see that you can request a babysitter for a maximum of three days a week and for twelve weeks in a row. This limit is in place, because our Babysitting Angels work under the Settlement services at home agreement. Do you want to extend this period with the same Babysitting Angel? No problem! Just make a new booking for the following weeks.

What does a fixed babysitter cost?

A fixed babysitter at home may sound expensive, but with two or more kids it's often cheaper than other types of childcare. At Charly Cares, you pay the babysitter per hour instead of per child. The hourly rates of our Angels vary between €5 and €12 and are dependent on the age and experience of the babysitter.You only pay a babysitter for the hours you need it. This can come in handy for the holiday weeks or when your schedule changes. You can cancel a babysitting service free of charge for up until 24 hours in advance.

In contrast to a long-term contract with daycare, you only pay a fixed babysitter at Charly Cares for the hours you actually use. Handy with the holiday weeks, or when your schedule is slightly different. You can cancel a babysitting service free of charge up to 24 hours in advance. Do you sometimes need more childcare? Then you can book your Babysitting Angel extra with 1 push of a button via the app. Easy does it!

‘“Easy peasy! You download the app, indicate your preferences (type of babysitter, dates, special wishes etc.) & you get a match! Every Babysitting Angel also comes with a star rating, that all parents have to give & you can create your own babysitting poule with your favourite babysitters. So you can feel free to do your own thing as a parent.”

Hilke van Lieshout

“I never have to worry about the idea of “oh gosh, what kind of person will I be inviting into my house?” The kids love it! Especially when the babysitter helps the kids with their homework or does fun activities with them. For example, our Babysitting Angel helped my son with his presentation, and he went into it with so much self-confidence!”

A fixed babysitter is a custom made service

At Charly Cares, we do everything we can to ensure that your booking succeeds. Sometimes this is quite a challenge, because of preferences, expectations and appropriate schedules. The following features in our app ensure that the success rate of the booking is increased:

Counter offer
Can't find a babysitter for all the weeks you've requested? Then the Babysitting Angel has the opportunity to make a counter proposal. Together you can still achieve a good match.

Job Finder
You can think of this feature as the old-fashioned notice board at the supermarket, where you hang up a note if you are looking for a babysitter.

What is the Job Finder?

When your booking has been open for a little while, it will become visible for other babysit Angels in your area that have a match with your profile. They can offer them selves to the booking and you need to accept or decline their job offer. This applies to fixed bookings as well. You can see their profiles in the booking and see if there's a good match. If your Angels didn't respond to the invitation yet, the Job Finder can give you the certainty of a babysitter!

How do the counter offers in fixed bookings work?

When you send an invitation for a fixed booking to an Angel, she can accept or decline the booking. If she accepts de booking, she will commit to all days. Sometimes an Angel really loves to babysit, but she is unable to attend all bookings. In this case she can send you a counteroffer in which you will see the days she can come. You need to accept or decline this offer. This way, you will be sure of a number of bookings with the same person.

'‘I like to immediately play along with the kids, to make the parents and kids feel comfortable. And besides that when I’m at a new babysitting address we usually exchange numbers so we can get a hold of each other quickly when we need to. And I like to send them a picture and a small WhatsApp message every now and then to let them know all is well. That’s always appreciated!’'

Babysitting Angel Sanne
22 jaar from Utrecht, hourly rate €10,00

'‘At my fixed babysitting address I usually babysit until 6:30 PM. I make sure to have had dinner with the kids and that they’ve taken a bath and are fully ready to go to bed. So when the parents then come home, the only thing they will have to focus on is bringing the kids to bed in a relaxed manner!’'

You can book an Angel for any time of the day, even to arrange for pre-school care. The Angel ensures the kids are ready for school, makes breakfast, and takes them to school. Everything to make sure you can leave comfortably and on time.

What exactly is an after-school Babysitting Angel?

A Charly Cares after-school babysitter picks the children up from school (possibly with the car, if it is available). When back home, the babysitter helps the children with homework, plays games with them, and brings them to sports or music practice. In addition, an after-school babysitter really becomes part of the household and helps out with light household chores, such as cooking. You can book this babysitter on a weekly basis, for 12 consecutive weeks. If it is agreeable to both sides, then you can of course extend your booking.
