    Default Letter of recommendation for daycare worker?

    Has anyone ever written a letter of recommendation for someone they know? DS's daycare teacher is leaving (long story) and asked me to write her a referral while she's looking for a new job.

    I really love her and think she's great. She's even become my new babysitter. I just don't know what to say! Any ideas for some good key phrases?

    I've thought of stuff like "she's compassionate," "provides a consistently high level of care," etc. But I'm looking for some other ideas. Thanks!

    Hello!

    I have written a letter of recommendation for one of Ellen's former teachers. Some key phrases:

    "Highly adept at multi-tasking"
    "Excellent time management"
    "Respected by her co-workers"
    "Remains calm in stressful situations"
    "Trustworthy"

    Good Luck and let us know if you need additional help!

    Here are a few examples off a random daycare site:

    All of your ideas and the other poster's suggestions are perfect.
    I would also put in a personal example or two of times she has gone above and beyond.

    HTH!

    I don't know how professional is is to put it in the letter, but I have always remembered and been grateful to a family I babysat for over a number of years who stated, "we entrust her with the most precious things we have...our children." I was touched by that.

    And I agree with the other suggestions...

    Dependable, trustworthy, compassionate, high level of care provided, and so on.
