About Juggle Street

Everyone at Juggle Street is passionate about rebuilding a sense of community and friendship in our neighbourhoods. We create networks of trust and cooperation by establishing new, meaningful connection between families and neighbours of all ages. Juggle Street is a social network where busy working parents put their neighbours to work. Juggle Street is not a childcare agency, we do not provide caregiver services ourselves, and we do not provide recommendations about helpers on our platform. Juggle Street is an “introductory platform” posting babysitting and nanny jobs introducing parents to local helpers. It is imperative that parents do their own due diligence and validate certifications and references provided by helpers. "My hope is that every little Juggle Street job will build a relationship, it will help out a neighbour, and it will breathe life into the local community. Our goal is to connect one million people of all ages, street-by-street across Australia and New Zealand, creating trust-based networks that invigorate local communities." Happy Juggling! - David James

Ruth Johnson – Kiwi Juggler

With four children ranging from toddler to teenager Ruth knows all about the juggle! An Early Childhood Teacher, studying Counsellor and a busy mum, she is passionate about helping families and children. Ruth and her family spent three years living in Sydney which is where she became an avid user of Juggle Street. After returning to NZ Ruth discovered there was no Juggle Street and felt like a part of her family was missing! In early 2018 Ruth approached Juggle HQ about bringing Juggle Street to NZ and spent the next 18 months launching and establishing Juggle Street in New Zealand. Ruth has since returned to teaching and furthering her counselling studies, but still finds time to advise Juggle Street on all things Kiwi! Tu meke!
