Im applying to be a childminder and my team leader in work is happy to write me one, but wants to know what to say...i guess responsible, honest, organised, tidy appearance and have good timekeeping...anything else needed?

ah, im in NI, and we dont have ofsted..references are made up entirely by the references - at least, it asks for two references on front of the 20 page form booklet i was sent, but no other mention of it, so I am assuming so..
