Dear Ms. Sommers:
When I saw your posting in search of a new Child Care Worker, I was eager to submit my resume for your consideration. With my solid background in child care and babysitting for children of all ages—coupled with my college coursework in early education and my caring personality—I am confident that I can provide excellent child care at Blossom Daycare in this role.
My background includes excellent experience in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children ranging in age from newborn through ten years. At the YMCA of North Portland, I excelled in a three-year role providing overarching child care support in parents’absense and acquired key skills in organizing recreational activities, preparing and serving snacks, cleaning toys, setting up special projects, and facilitating children’s social development. I have also delivered child care support to numerous families over the past twelve years in various babysitting and nannying capacities, using my patient and fun-loving nature to earn children’s and parents’trust and build long-standing relationships. Additionally, I have key experience helping young children through separation anxiety situations, using distraction and refocussing techniques to help kids through those tough emotions.
A few highlights of my experience include:
Teaching children about various health and personal habits, including eating, resting, and toilet training.
Reading to children and leading them in diverse activities such as arts and crafts, songs, and outdoor play.
Pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education at Seattle City College.
Excelling at balancing multiple tasks while demonstrating superior organization, leadership, and communication skills.
My previous child care skills and experience, along with my positive attitude and friendly personality, position me to excel in this role with Blossom Daycare. 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.
