My town has a Time Bank club where you can help ohers and bank time getting assistance at your place.

We are also members of a co-op preschool which has an auxilliary child care swap opportunities. All parents go through protective services checks and the child care is by a friend with a child our kids' age.
Your idea sounds interesting too. It seems like you could do better with a group of 5 people rather than an open market time-share sort of thing.
