What does your contract say?

You can include bank holidays within her annual leave entitlement so the agency is correct

My question is she's great with your daughter and you bemoan the fact that she arrives on time and leaves on time?  That is not refusing to go above and beyond and suggests a very entitled attitude.

It is up to you whether you want to risk losing someone your daughter is settled with on account of this.  You must sit down and speak with her and decide whether it's worth the extra cost or not. 

Do you get paid bank holidays?

The agency is correct - she's working 4 days a week so she gets 80%.  She would get 20+8 if she was five days a week.

On another note, why shouldn't she arrive exactly on time and leave on time?  Are you expecting her to work for free outside these times?  If you want her to work outside these times then arrange this in advance and pay her appropriately.

It sounds as if communication may be an issue in your working relationship.

Your lovely nanny does any amazing work within her paid hours? And you're implying you want to punish her by withholding part of her holiday entitlement...because she's not working additional hours for free? Are you a character in Motherland?

What does the contract say?

We always worked on the basis that a full time nanny got 20 days holiday. So our nanny who worked 4 days got 4/5 of 20 days ie 16 days holiday.  Then for bank holidays - normally I think 8 in a year so 4/5 of paid bank holidays.  (which increases/decreases holiday allowance depending on how they fall eg my nanny did Tues-Fri which usually increased holiday allowance due to many BH falling on a Monday).

This is also the same formula that my employer uses with me.  It is in my nanny's contract and in my employment contract.

Our agreement is then that nanny chooses half the holiday, us the rest.  Our nanny has always done well as we just take our holiday when we want which always means she gets more than she is entitled to and when she's wanted more on her allowance she's taken unpaid leave (also we've given her some extra occasionally).

p.s. my nannies have always arrived and left on time, I can't see why that's an issue?   They have normally been flexible eg if I get stuck travelling home they've been happy to stay a few mins late but if significantly late back I pay them extra.  I did have to have words with one about always arriving late!
