How can you be certain that the Babysitting Angel is reliable?

Reliability is paramount at Charly Cares. Before our Babysitting Angels start working for us, one of our recruiters meet them via an online video call. We also check 2 references for each Angel. During the video call, we discuss the babysitter's motivation, experience, and personality at length. But ultimately, it is up to parent and Angel to judge whether there is a good match between the two parties. We therefore recommend a personal introductory meeting before the Angel comes to babysit.
