Babysitters & Nannies - Normanhurst
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.

Normanhurst was originally known as Hornsby, with the suburb that is now known as Hornsby called Jack's Island. The construction of the Main Northern and North Shorerailway lines in the 1890s brought about a name change. The two lines were joined at a station called Hornsby Junction, whereas the station one stop south on the Northern line kept the name Hornsby. Due to confusion around the similarly named stops, the postmaster demanded that Hornsby station change its name. The railway station originally known as 'Hornsby', opened on 21 November 1895 and the name was changed to Normanhurst in 1900. The first Hornsby Post Office opened on 1 August 1864 and was renamed South Hornsby in 1900 and Normanhurst in 1905.
Normanhurst was derived from the name of a prominent resident, civil engineer Norman Selfe (1839–1911), with hurst being the English word for a wooded hill. Ironically, Selfe protested against the name change. The railway station was renamed in 1900 and was used for the suburb that developed around it.
Normanhurst is divided by Pennant Hills Road, a major north-south thoroughfare that leads north to the M1 Motorway, and south towards Parramatta. However, both the east and west sections have extensive bush access. On the east side, a small section of bush lies between Normanhurst and Fox Valley. This is land occupied by the SAN Hospital. On the western side, the suburb backs onto the southern reaches of the Berowra Valley, a continuous section of bush stretching all the way to Broken Bay. This gives Normanhurst a very "leafy" and rural look, in comparison to its neighbours Hornsby, Pennant Hills and Thornleigh. This in turn contributes to making native bird life abundant. The area is home to cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets, kookaburras, noisy miners and native brush turkeys. Additionally, Normanhurst has several small waterfalls, which promote reptile life. It also has encouraged the growth of retirement residences in the suburb.
