Sample Reference Letter for a Nanny Position

Updated on: July 20, 2020

Nannies are responsible for looking after newborns, toddlers, and young children especially when the parents or guardians are busy or out of work. They provide both personal and educational services for children depending on their 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 concern of parents or agencies is one of the primary reasons an employer will ask for a reference letter when hiring someone for a nanny position.

Take a look at the following sample reference letter for a nanny 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 employed several nannies before I settled for Felicity as I have found her extremely dependable. I must say I am blessed to have had her all these years.

Felicity is an incredibly patient and amicable individual. She has been quite a role model to my daughter and has put up with her temper tantrums during the 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 unfortunate to see her go but I understand that she needs to move to a bigger city to pursue her dreams and recommend her heartily for a similar position as I am confident that she will do wonders for any child under her care.

Sincere Regards,
