Dear Mrs. Larossa,

I am writing to you in reference to Bonnie Green. Ms. Green has been in my employ as a Babysitter and Mother's helper for the past four years. During that time, I have had the pleasure of seeing her grow from a high school student to a mature young woman graduating with her Associates Degree in Child Care. I believe that she is well qualified and experienced to accept the challenge of being a full time nanny.

When Ms. Green first came to my employ, she primarily watched my son, aged one, while I worked from my home office. As he grew older, and was joined by a brother, Ms. Green's responsibilities increased to watching the two children alone, making meals for them, and taking them on short outings, to the park, mall, etc. I have had the utmost confidence in her judgment and maturity, and have always felt comfortable leaving my children in her care.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 555-111-1234 or donnaselle@gmail.com.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Donna Selle
