Babysitters & Nannies - Wahroonga
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.
" Our kids love Katya. She shows lots of initiative and can just as easily go with the flow. We’re looking forward to having her back. "

Wahroonga is an Aboriginal word meaning our home. In the early days of British settlement in New South Wales, the main activity was cutting down the tall trees which grew there. Wahroonga was first settled in 1822 by Thomas Hyndes, a convict who became a wealthy landowner. Hyndes's land was later acquired by John Brown, a merchant and timber-getter. After Brown had cleared the land of timber, he planted orchards. Later, Ada, Lucinda and Roland Avenues were named after three of his children. His name has ì in Browns Road, Browns Field and Browns Waterhole on the Lane Cove River. The last member of the Brown family was Gertrude Mary Appleton, who died in 2008 at the age of ninety-three. She is buried in the cemetery of St John the Baptist Church, Gordon.
After the North Shore railway line was opened in 1890 it became a popular place for wealthy businessmen to build out-of-town residences with large gardens. Wahroonga Post Office opened on 15 October 1896. Much of this development occurred in the 1920s and 1930s. Wahroonga railway station is on the North Shore, Northern & Western Line of the Sydney Trainsnetwork. Wahroonga is the Sydney end of the M1 Motorway to Newcastle. Wahroonga is known for its tree-lined, shady streets. Notable streets include Burns Road, Water Street and Billyard Avenue.
