Whether it concerns a night out with friends, or structural after-school care; every family is familiar with the challenges regarding childcare. Having a great reliable babysitter available is absolutely not an unnecessary luxury.

Meet Charly Cares

  • More than just a babysitter

    Our Angels help the children discover themselves, develop, and grow. You will always be able to find a babysitter with a profile that fits your family.

  • Quick, smart, easy

    Decide how and when you need your babysitter and arrange everything with ease in our app. You can already have a babysitter come by in just 3 hours or, for example, arrange after-school care.

  • Safe and reliable

    We have personally met every Angel and, after each babysitting service, parents leave a rating & review. Our Customer Care and the Angel insurance are also always there for you if you need them.

The most reliable babysitting network

Before a Babysitting Angel is admitted to the app, we first meet them for an interview. During the one-on-one interview, we discuss the babysitter’s experience, references, and motivation. After a babysitting service, parents give the babysitter a rating and review. That is how we aim to create transparency and safeguard the quality of our platform.

Are all Angels screened and what does the screening entail?

Before an Angel can start babysitting via Charly Cares, we meet the Angel personally. 2 references are also checked at first. During the meeting, we dive into motivation, experience and personality. 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.

What types of Babysitting Angels do you offer?

At Charly Cares, you can find several different types of Babysitting Angels. Some Babysitting Angels are available to support a family on a fixed basis, whereas other Babysitting Angels prefer to babysit only occasionally. There is always a babysitter who fits your babysitting needs, whether you are looking for a fixed, after-school, flexible, or last minute babysitter.

We do not have any au pairs or nannies on file. We do have fixed Babysitting Angels who are available to babysit at fixed times every week. Need a babysitter for multiple days every week? In that case, we advise that you book multiple Angels.

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.

I am looking for a fixed babysitter for multiple days a week, can you help me?

If you are looking for a babysitter for multiple days a week, we advise that you book multiple Angels. Create multiple bookings, select your favourite Angels, and post the bookings to Jobboard to increase the chances of your booking succeeding!

For bookings starting in September in specific for a longer period, we advise to create a booking request as short as possible before the actual booking takes place, select only 1 to max 4 times the same Angel and discuss then whether they can stay longer. The reason is that we have a lot of students in our database and they don't know yet what their school schedule will be. Next to that and in general, booking requests that are created a few weeks before the actual booking takes place are also less successful than bookings that start sooner.
