I am looking for a back up daycare or sitter in Jacksonville. My boyfriend is in the military and has to go out to sea sometimes and I would need childcare for our daughter on some Sundays when he is out. Does any one know if someone who baby sits or a service to go through.

Hi there! I run into the same problem too 🙂 I am new to Mayo Clinic in jax and the resources that I know are provided are from Bright Horizons child Care. They also can direct you to a Nanny service if you need It. 🙂
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?
Hi! I am in the same boat as you! I am a new RN in the OR here at Jax. I also have days/nights where I will need to be on call. I am definitely interested in exchanging child care if you are still interested? I'm not sure how to message people directly on this platform, but please feel free to text me anytime! (602) 723-6353.
