Help writing a reference for my CM?

My CM is currently trying to fill a new vacancy and has asked me to write a reference which I'm more than happy to do (she's fabulous ) but I'm not sure what to write that would help any prosective parents.

how long your child has been going
why you like the care she provides (lots of outings, healthy food, activities they do, the communication you get from your cm - diary?, the love your child gets, etc)
anything out of the ordinary she might have done to help you (eg being super flexible over a difficult period at work).
that you totally trust her with your child
that you're happy to have a telephone conversation with the prospective parent if they would like one

Thanks ttdb. Do you think it matters that my DS has only been with her 5 months? Should I give my phone number or just an offer to discuss & my CM provide my details? I really want her to get someone lovely as, well, she's so lovely & I feel so lucky to have found her
