Juggle Street is a neighbourhood network providing busy families access to trusted, local helpers including babysitters, nannies, au pairs and home tutors. When parents and helpers have competed their profiles, they can connect, chat online and meet face-to-face if they wish. Juggle Street Pty Ltd is a wholly owned Australian company based in Sydney.
There are no pre-determined prices, or fixed hourly rates for jobs on Juggle Street. Parents set the price they are willing to pay for each job, and post it to one or many of their local helpers. The helpers decide if the job is ‘worth it’ and apply or decline. Helpers get paid cash or via bank transfer by the family at the end of each job. Juggle Street is free to join and use for helpers, parents pay per job post or subscribe.
At Juggle Street, trust and security are paramount. That’s why everyone who joins (parents and helpers) need to complete mobile phone verification before their profile is activated. A family’s exact home address is only shared with the helper who is awarded the job. Working with Children Checks are mandatory since May 2019.

Juggle Street is one of Australia’s largest networks of babysitters, nannies and in-home and online tutors. It is the perfect way to search, find and meet local trusted babysitters.
Juggle Street is an on-demand job platform, which means you can book immediate help for your child in a few easy steps. All of Juggle Street’s carers have detailed profiles outlining their experience and qualifications. You can use our filters to find babysitters and nannies who have a driver’s licence, specific language and special needs training. Juggle Street babysitters and nannies are reviewed by other parents on our network which means that their profiles display star ratings and written reviews from other families like you!
Once a parent is ready to find a babysitter, they can post a job and outline all of their requirements and select a date and start and finish time. They can then invite a group of Juggle Street babysitters to apply for the job.
Job invitations are delivered to babysitters via SMS and they can view the job details and apply or decline. The “chat” feature can be used to ask questions and arrange to have an interview or a phone call. Once the parent has chosen their babysitter they officially “award” them the job so that both parties have a record of the details.
Take time to view babysitter profiles. You can use our filters to narrow down your search such as age, language, special needs and first aid training. Written reviews from other parents will be displayed on the profiles of babysitters who have done Juggle Street jobs previously and is a great way of gaining extra information about a helper’s personality and reliability.
You can reach out to babysitters who are on your shortlist by using our “chat’ feature. Ask how many children they usually look after and the age range.
When a babysitter applies for a job they will state how they intend to get home. This also may impact your decision of who to choose, depending on if they are driving themselves, getting public transport or walking home.
You may choose to do a trial run where you go out for a short period of time to see how the babysitter gets on with your children. This will provide you with the opportunity to test the babysitter’s skills in action and to determine how well he or she follows instructions that you have provided. It also allows your children and the babysitter to become more familiar with each other.
Leaving your baby for the first time with a sitter can be an overwhelming experience. Here are some tips on how to prepare for this major event of your life as a parent.
