I started a thread on this a few weeks ago. The consensus was that unless the current visa rules are changed overseas nannies and au pairs will pretty much dry up post-Brexit. There is no longer such a thing as an au pair visa. The very large majority of au pairs over the past five years have come from the EU. Those from Oz and NZ have come on working holiday visas (some ancestry visas) but will be able to get better paid jobs in a constricted labour market (especially given native English speakers).
I also hope that Brexit never happens, but I don't see any reason to think that it's not going to.
