Dear Mrs. Moss:
When I learned of Little Darling Daycare’s need for an enthusiastic Child Care Assistant to join its team, I was eager to submit my resume for consideration. With extensive babysitting experience coupled with my fun and personable demeanour, I am confident that I can provide excellent child care at your organization.
As a junior at Western University, I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education due to my love of working with children. For the past eight years, I have served as a babysitter for numerous families—for which I am happy to provide references—including children from infancy through age 12. From preparing snacks and changing diapers to helping with homework and ensuring overarching safety, I have proven myself to be enthusiastic and supportive in every aspect of caring for children. Furthermore, I have experience helping children through separation anxiety, using distraction and refocussing techniques to help kids through those tough emotions.
Along with my experience and education, I have also completed basic CPR and AED training and possess a deep understanding of first aid supplies and techniques. These attributes, complemented by my outgoing and communicative nature, are sure to render me an asset to your team and make a positive impression on parents and caregivers.
My child care skills and experience, along with my positive attitude and friendly nature, position me to excel in this role. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss my qualifications in more detail.
Thank you very much, and I look forward to speaking with you soon!
Julia K. Francis
