Stop trying to juggle it all! The Juggle app, described as the “Uber of babysitting,” allows busy families to look, book, and pay for a babysitter right from their phones. Designed by moms for moms, Juggle takes the stress out of selecting trustworthy childcare. The app was born out of a group text. “Within an evening we knew that we wanted to create an app, its name and the services we wanted to offer,” explains co-creator Emily Music.
Babysitters i.e. “jugglers” are recruited from local universities and background-checked. “We look for jugglers who are energetic, engaged, educated and experienced,” Music says. To utilize the app, families simply select the date and time that they need a juggler. All available jugglers for that time will appear along with icons indicating which of their friends have used and reviewed each babysitter. A pre-established hourly rate is paid directly via the app.
The Juggle app has been wildly successful in Columbus and Cincinnati and is growing fast, expanding across Ohio to Dayton, Toledo, and Findlay. All four Juggle creators are Findlayites. “It’s our hometown!” says Music. “We’ve always felt very supported by Findlay and want to share Juggle with our friends and family.”
The Juggle app will launch locally later this summer.
