(This would apply on any of the trips where the nanny is sharing the room or proxy parenting or on 24 hour call)
You would get 28 days holiday ( inclusive of all religious and statutory holidays), it is difficult for them to accommodate the odd days off here and there so it is preferred that you take your leave in “chunks” so half at your choice in a chunk and half at the parents' choice in a chunk, of course from time to time if you would like to take the odd day of your leave but the preference is definitely for a few consecutive days at a time so that we can get them a temp to cover your leave.

They appreciate a team approach in the home and are respectful and kind, their interests are technology, yoga, & wellness.
