Juggle Street is a neighbourhood network providing busy families access to trusted, local helpers including babysitters, nannies, au pairs and home tutors. When parents and helpers have competed their profiles, they can connect, chat online and meet face-to-face if they wish. Juggle Street Pty Ltd is a wholly owned Australian company based in Sydney.
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 helpers. The helpers decide if the job is ‘worth it’ and apply or decline. Helpers get paid cash or via bank transfer by the family at the end of each job. Juggle Street is free to join and use for helpers, parents pay per job post or subscribe.
At Juggle Street, trust and security are paramount. That’s why everyone who joins (parents and helpers) need to complete mobile phone verification before their profile is activated. A family’s exact home address is only shared with the helper who is awarded the job. Working with Children Checks are mandatory since May 2019.

Juggle Street is one of Australia’s largest networks of babysitters, nannies and in-home and online tutors. It is the perfect way to search, find and meet local trusted nannies.
Juggle Street is an on-demand job platform, which means you can book immediate help for your child in a few easy steps. All of Juggle Street’s carers have detailed profiles outlining their experience and qualifications. You can use our filters to find nannies who have a driver’s licence, specific language and special needs training. Juggle Street babysitters and nannies are reviewed by other parents on our network which means that their profiles display star ratings and written reviews from other families like you!
Once a parent is ready to find a nanny, they can post a job and outline all of their requirements and complete a weekly schedule. They can then invite a group of Juggle Street nannies to apply for the job.
Job invitations are delivered to nannies via SMS and they can view the job details and apply or decline. The “chat” feature can be used to ask questions and arrange to have an interview or a phone call. Once the parent has chosen their nanny they officially “award” them the job so that both parties have a record of the details.
It’s a good idea to do a trial run with your nanny. This will provide you with the opportunity to test their skills in action and to determine how well he or she follows instructions that you have provided. It also allows your children and the nanny to become more familiar with each other.
Nanny profiles include written reviews from other parents if they have previously done jobs on Juggle Street. Read through the comments to gain a better insight into the nanny’s personality and reliability.
You may wish to ask the nanny for a couple of references from families they have worked for. Set aside time to call the referees and ask questions that will help you decide whether to hire them or not.
Your nanny will play a fundamental role in your child’s development. It is only natural that you would want to form a warm bond with this person so that they feel like they are part of the family.
Here are some ideas to help include your nanny in your family’s life:
Finding a great nanny is as much about intuition as it is about qualifications. But whether you are hiring a nanny for a short period or (hopefully) a year to come, here are some questions to help find the right person for your family.
