To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is a formal recommendation for [Name of Caregiver] for the job of child care. I met her through a common friend and learned that she was looking for employment as a child caregiver. 

She offered me two recommendation letters that spoke very highly of her character. One was from a judge and the other was from a previous employer. 

[Name of Caregiver] has worked for me for the past five years and looked after both my son and my daughter. When she started, my son was two years and my daughter was four years. 

They are now old enough not to not require a full-time caregiver, which is the reason we are sadly letting [Name of Caregiver] go. 

However, she would be a cheerful and positive addition to any family, and I highly recommend her for any child care job. 

Her focus and enthusiasm drives her multi-tasking abilities, and she has always made both of my children feel valued and cared-for. 

She makes it a point to look online for games and activities that attract the children to fun and educational projects. 

[Name of Caregiver] moved closely with our family on a daily basis and twice accompanied us on vacation. I can attest to her loyalty and confidentiality and she conducts herself very professionally, never taking advantage of her position.

We hope to keep in touch with [Name of Caregiver] throughout the years and wish her well in her future endeavors. If you are considering Name of Caregiver as a personal child caregiver, you may not find a better person. 

If you have any questions, I can be reached at [Phone Number] or at [Email Address] and will be happy to give you more information about [Name of Candidate].
