Looking For Babysitter With Baby Experience

The reliability of our Babysitting Angels

Reliability is paramount at Charly Cares. Before Angels are admitted to our platform, they are screened and we run a reference check. During the screening, we discuss motivation, background, and experience (at least 2 years). In addition, each parent leaves an obligatory rating & review after each babysitting service. These are also visible to other parents.

What does a babysitter cost?

When looking into different types of childcare, you are of course curious about the associated costs! A Charly Cares Babysitting Angel costs between €8 and €15 per hour, depending on age and experience. In addition, you pay for the Charly Cares membership, so that you can enjoy all the benefits of our platform.

Frequently asked questions:

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 can you be certain that the Babysitting Angel is reliable?

Reliability is number one priority at Charly Cares. Before our Babysitting Angels start working with us, they are personally checked for experience, motivation and personality. We also ask for 2 references from families where they have babysat before. When filling out their profile in the app, they can do a personal iDIN check, which we use to verify their personal data. In addition, our Angels and families are both rated after each babysitting service, supplemented with a review if necessary. We constantly monitor this to ensure quality. These ratings & reviews are also visible to you when you book an Angel.

Here you can find a video where Charly further elaborates on this subject!

I want to meet the Angel beforehand. How do I arrange that?

Sure! Create a booking for the time you actually need a babysitter. After an Angel has accepted the booking, you can agree to meet through the chat or you can call the Angel directly. If you would prefer to meet in person, you can create a short, two-hour booking to get to know each other.

What is the hourly rate of a babysitter?

Angels are able to choose their own hourly rate, so it can be different per Angel. The hourly rate varies between approximately €7 and €20 per hour.
