Lots of college students and teenagers get their first professional break by taking care of children as a babysitter. A Babysitting Reference Letter might be required by a number of parents or employers. Therefore, teachers or previous employers might be asked to write a reference letter when a babysitter apply for a new job.

In this kind of letter, the previous employer writes about babysitter skills, qualities and capabilities.

Following is a good example of a reference letter for a babysitter. You may modify this example as per your circumstances.

To Whom It May Concern

I am writing this letter to recommend Sara Brown as a Babysitter. She worked at my home as a babysitter for 3 years. During this duration, I have had the satisfaction of seeing her grown from a high school student to a mature young lady pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree. I believe that she is competent and experienced enough to fit in any child care capacity.

Sara took care of my son and daughter ages 1 and 3 during my absence. She competently prepared formulas, made nutritious meals, and took them on outings and social gatherings. I have had the highest confidence in her trustworthiness, judgement and maturity, and always felt relaxed after leaving my kids in her supervision.

In fact, she was more than a babysitter as she proved herself a member of our family. My children are upset due to her absence but we know that she has to advance her career. I wish her best of luck in her future endeavors.

In case you have any questions regarding her work, please feel free to contact me.
