Reference Check from Previous Employer

To whom it may concern:

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Leanne Beck in relation to future child caring work. Leanne worked for me several times looking after my 4 kids, ranging in ages from 7 to 12.

Leanne always came to my home on time, cheerful and ready to engage the children in play and other activities. She is a very responsible, punctual person that follows instructions without any problem and who is always aware of the time for the different activities that she must do with the kids (play time, study time, dinner time, and bedtime).

At all times I found Leanne to be a kind, caring and compassionate person and my kids always respected her as an authority figure. I always had the highest confidence in her trustworthiness, judgement and maturity and always felt relaxed after leaving my kids in her care.

You can be sure that your kids will be in the best hands with Leanne.

Regards,
Colin
