Babysitters & Nannies - Leichhardt
We have a network of trusted local carers ready to connect with you. Whether it’s one-off babysitting, nannying or before & after school care, Juggle Street is here to help.
Juggle Street is a neighbourhood network providing busy families access to trusted, local carers. When parents and carers have completed their profiles they can connect, chat online, and meet face-to-face if they wish. Parents post jobs and carers receive and apply for jobs via SMS. Juggle Street is not a childcare agency, it does not provide caregiver services, and it does not provide recommendations about carers. Juggle Street is an “introductory platform” posting babysitting, nanny and before & after school care jobs.
Parents set the price they are willing to pay for each job, and post it to one or many of their local carers. The carers decide if the job is “worth it” and apply or decline. Carers get paid cash by the family at the end of each job. Juggle Street is free to join and use for carers. Juggle Street has two payment options for parents. 1. Pay As You Go for each job post. 2. Subscribe to a plan and Save!
At Juggle Street, trust and security are paramount, that’s why we need to verify each person who joins (parents and carers). Mobile phone verification needs to be completed before your profile is activated on Juggle Street, this is fast, secure and ensures that each person is who they claim to be. Carers aged 15 to 17 yrs need to have their profile approved by a parent or guardian.

Leichhardt is located 5 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district (CBD) and is the administrative centre for the local government area (LGA) of the Inner West Council. The suburb is bordered by Haberfield to the west, Annandale to the east, Lilyfield to the north and Petersham, Lewisham and Stanmore to the south. Leichhardt contains a mix of residential and commercial developments and is best known as Sydney's "Little Italy". Leichhardt residents and businesses live and work next to the Sydney CBD. Leichhardt was once an area broadly inhabited by the Wangal band of the Dharug (Eora) language group. The 'Eora people' was the name given to coastal Aborigines around Sydney – Eora means from this place – local Aboriginal people used this word to describe to Europeans where they came from, and in time the term became used to define Aboriginal people themselves. Wangal country was known as 'wanne' and it originally extended from the suburbs of Balmain and Birchgrove in the east to Silverwater and Auburn in the west. It is unclear how many people were in the tribe, some research indicates in the broader Sydney region there was between 8000 – 10000 indigenous people, migration over the seasons and violence between tribes would alter this number at different periods. The northern boundary was the Parramatta River.
Leichhardt can be accessed by several main roads including Parramatta Road, Norton Street, Balmain Road, Marion Street and Catherine Street. The City West Link Road runs along the northern border of Leichhardt and is a major arterial road, which is part of the A4 and crosses the Anzac Bridge to the CBD.
Leichhardt is home to many creative industry workers and is known for its colourful and inventive mural art, such as the panorama at the Renwick Lane and at the Hawthorne Canal Railway Underpass. Leichhardt has access to many art and cultural organisations. Commercial galleries are found throughout the area and Boomali Gallery, the Aboriginal Arts Organisation is situated in Flood Street in Leichhardt. The Italian community has a wealth of social and cultural organisations located in Leichhardt, and work is underway everyday to develop the Italian Forum Cultural Centre. Co.As.It. is one of them and they provide a range of culturally and linguistically appropriate services to enhance the quality of life of the community and to promote the Italian language and culture in New South Wales.
