Thanks so much for giving me a reference. I’ve applied to be an after school nanny with Koru Kids. They will be contacting you via text or email in the next few days. I’d love to start working with a family soon, so would be grateful if could complete the reference as quickly as possible. It will only take a few minutes of your time!
