Mother of: two daughters Lexie and Isabel Lives in: The Hague Founder of: Online platforms @florineduif and The Mompany Experiences Charly Cares as:

“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.”

Lieske Michielsen (35)

Mother of: son Jan and daughter Josephine Lives in: Amsterdam Oud-Zuid Experience with Charly Cares:

“Of course you want to leave your kids in good hands. That’s why I find the personal & fast service from Charly Cares great. For example, if our Babysitting Angel is ill, you get a call straight away and they find you a new Babysitting Angel in half an hour!”

What does the interview look like?

Trustworthiness is number one with Charly Cares. A Babysitting Angels is only added to our database after an interview. Curious as to what the interview is like?

Barbara den Hollander (38)

Lives with: husband Rens den Hollander (45), daughter (10) and son (7) Lives in: the centre of Amsterdam on a self-built houseboat Founder of: organic baby food Bio Bebo Uses Charly Cares for:

“Unforeseen situations that mess up our entire planning. A babysitter is ideal in those cases. That’s why we decided to get a fixed babysitter through Charly Cares. Always for Thursday nights (our date night) or for work appointments. When we leave, we always leave feeling comfortable.”

Gijs van Vuuren

Lives with: partner Juliette and sons Gijs (2 years) and Philippe (3 months) Lives and works in: the Jordaan, Amsterdam Experiences Charly Cares as:

“For many parents who’ve just had their first child, getting a babysitter can be quite nerve-wracking. The great thing about Charly Cares is that all Babysitting Angels are screened and have the necessary diplomas. We mostly use the app when we need a last-minute babysitter. It immediately felt familiar!”

Hilke van Lieshout

Lives with: partner Hans, and son Tijmen, daughter Plein, son Freek and bunny Bliksem Lives in: Aerdenhout On Charly Cares:

“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!”
