1. Childcare solution
Au pairs can help you to take care of school runs, taking them to clubs, helping them with homework and spending quality time with your children while you are away.
2. Light domestic Help
An au pair can help you with light chores around the house, they can tidy the house and hoover, do some small shops, collect and send mail from the post office etc.
3. Culture Conveniences
Your children will be taken care of, and they will get a taste of foreign culture which is very important to open their horizons.
Au pair can introduce or teach her native language to children, songs, phrases.
An au pair normally works 25-30 hours a week which you can arrange it in a way that accommodates your needs.
Although every childcare arrangement seems to be very expensive, an au pair programme is less so if you compare it to a nanny live in or live out and a childminder.
