To Whom It May Concern

I am writing this reference letter for Anna Brown as a Babysitter who cared for my five years old son as a babysitter. Anna has shown tremendous patience with my son’s temper tantrums and diapers over the four years – a virtue that most babysitters do not possess.

During the time Anna worked for me, I did not worry about anything. My son was well taken care of, my house was kept clean (a job that most of us working women dread doing) and I had the peace of mind that I cannot imagine with another babysitter. She took exceptional care of my son’s eating habits as he was a fussy eater and even managed to make him eat (and like) broccoli!

Since my son is now old enough to manage on his own, Anna believes that she needs to move on. While both my son and I will miss her terribly as she has been a part of our family, we agree that she needs to do what she does best, i.e., look after little children and help them grow up to be fine young people.

Owing to her dedication and eagerness to work with children, Anna will be a great asset to any family that she will work for. I wish her the best of luck in the future. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need more information about Anna and her work.


Warm Regards,
