English term or phrase: referee
Gracias de antemano por su ayuda. ¿Referencia? ¿Persona referida?

She in particular has a great deal of experience of different children from her job as a teacher in a special needs school and now in her role as principal. As a couple, they have experience of babysitting Kelly’s nephew and looking after Dave’s nephew and niece. Their referee talked very positively about the couple’s ability to cope with children. It is clear when talking to both Dave and Kelly that they enjoy the contact they have with children, they look forward to seeing their niece and nephews arrive. They recognize the different personalities of the children and are accepting that different things work with each child

presentador


Explanation:
Alude a la persona que presenta a la pareja y da buenas referencias sobre ellos.

Intuyo que en este caso no es sólo "la persona que dá referencias" sobre la pareja, si no quien además la presenta tal vez ante un proceso de selección.

Espero que sirva el aporte, buena suerte.
