Babysitters & Nannies - Merrylands
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.
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 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
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.
