Nothing worse than due to work and your child gets sick. Au Pairs live in the home which can help provide flexible childcare when the unexpected happens such as sick children and unexpected school closures.
It’s difficult to get a babysitter and expensive by the time you pay for their taxi home Au Pairs can provide a live-in evening and nighttime babysitting service as part of their work hour
Childcare difficult to find and there is a lot of misinformation out there about Au Pair.

Hate spending the weekend cleaning up after the family. Au Pairs can clean and tidy and help children to do their tasks, freeing your time to spend with your family.
Hate rushing home to do homework esp when kids are tired and cranky.  Not only can Au Pairs help children with homework, but they can help teach them about their own culture and traditions, as well as teach the children some of their languages.
No childcare is available because your work shift work. Au Pair is an ideal solution for frontline workers such as doctors, nurses, social care staff, guards, etc.
Children need attention but you are too busy hitting remote working targets. Au Pairs are like a big sister or brother who enjoys and has the energy to play and entertain children, letting you get on with your job.
Babysitter/ Minder let your down. Au Pairs can offer family stability with placements ranging from just short-term in the summer to up to 12 months and future matches organised by the agency.
No one to drop the children at school or to their activities. Many Au Pairs can drive.
