Weekend back up childcare in FL

I found that Bright Horizons are hit or miss. My son had a mild illness last week and we put a request in on Bright Horizons (you can't cancel after 5pm and nobody answers the phone) and nobody showed up... The next day I arranged a nanny and once everything was arranged, they called and said that they found someone at 8pm, so I double booked nannies. My son is 2 years old and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a babysitting club a weekend a month or to help each other out, either hire a babysitter together or take turns to look after the kids? We are new to Fl too and we are constantly looking for childcare.

Hi! I'm new to Jax and have a 3 month old. I'm running into the same problem finding reliable, last minute child care for my son. I'm starting as nurse in the Cath Lab at Mayo and have days/nights where I will have to be on-call. Bright Horizons through Mayo isn't able to provide child care quickly enough for these last-minute call ins (they said they need at least 4 hours for in-home nannies). I'm wondering if anyone would be available/interested in exchanging child care? Or if anyone knows of a group of moms in the area that are available to help for last minute families?
