Charly Cares is here for parents, now more than ever

For many parents, it can be a difficult period for finding care for the children. Schools or daycares are closed and working from home with children poses a challenge. Charly Cares wants to unburden every parent, now more than ever. Our fixed Babysitting Angels are here to help parents weekly at fixed times, with an adjusted corona policy. Via our app, you can find one familiar and experienced face for the coming period.

  • Extra attention for tasks such as cooking, help with homework, or light household chores

  • Only pay for the hours you actually need

Safely booking a babysitter with our corona policy

The safety of our families and Angels is paramount. Through our corona policy in accordance with the RIVM guidelines, we do everything we can to guarantee safety and health. For example, we ask our babysitter about their health several times prior to the babysitting service. We are also happy to share our tips and best practices with you, so that you can book safely.

Tips for booking safely

Looking for a responsible and experienced babysitter?

On our platform, you can find fixed babysitter with a great sense of responsibility and lots of experience, just like Babysitting Angel Anne:

“During the babysitting service, I always keep the RIVM guidelines in mind: I keep my distance from parents and continuously check my own health. I also keep my social circle as small as possible, both privately and for babysitting. For example, I only babysit for 1 family, so that the parents can work from home undisturbed.”

With Charly Cares Business, you can get a fixed babysitter at home through your employer for moments you need to be able to work productively.

Parents also assess the angel after each babysitting service with a rating & review. This valuable information is always visible in the babysitter's profile. On top of that, every Angel is insured for damage during the babysitting service through a liability insurance. So rest assured, you can book a babysitter without having to worry.

Frequently asked questions

Does each babysitter visit your office?

Absolutely. We personally screen each Babysitting Angel at one of our screening locations before the babysitter gains access to the Babysitting App. During the screening the (educational) background and the babysitting experience of the Angel will be discussed. Babysitting experience is mandatory and the references that the Angel presents are carefully checked.

Can I meet the Babysitting Angel beforehand?

Sure! Create a booking for the moment you 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 make a short booking of two hours to get to know eachother.

How do you know for sure that the Babysitting Angel is reliable?

Trustworthiness is number one at Charly Cares. Before our Babysitting Angels get to work for us, they are extensively screened at one of our screening locations. During the interview, their background and babysitting experience is discussed. Babysitting experience is required, the Babysitting Angel has to provide two references.
