Nannies are responsible for looking after newborns, toddlers and young children especially when the parents or guardians are busy or out for work.
They provide both personal and educational services for children depending on their individual place of work.
When a nanny is hired, she is screened quite carefully since there are children involved and their well-being is of the utmost importance.
This is one of the prime reasons an employer will ask for a reference letter when hiring someone at this position.

To Whom It May Concern
It is a great pleasure to recommend Felicity Canne for a nanny position. Felicity has served as a full time Nanny for my three year old girl ever since she was three months old. I have had to employ several nannies before I settled for Felicity as I have found her to be extremely dependable. I must say I am blessed to have had her all these years.
Felicity is an extremely patient and very friendly individual. She has been quite a role model to my daughter and has put up with her temper tantrums during the extremely difficult terrible twos! The time she had colic, Felicity stayed up with her all night comforting her while I slept because I had work the next day. Since I keep long and busy hours, she has been kind enough to take my daughter to doctors’ appointments and playgrounds.
Felicity was recommended to me by a trusted friend and I have never had to worry when leaving my daughter alone with her. I am very sad to see her go but I understand that she needs to move to a bigger city to pursue her dreams and recommend her strongly for a similar position as I am confident that she will do wonders for any child under her care.
