Dear Mr. Settler,
I was excited to read about the opening you have for a teacher at Happy Feet Daycare and I am writing to apply for the job. I have a lot of experience as a babysitter for young children. I additionally just completed an Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education and have current CPR and First Aid certifications.
My goal is to teach and care for children in a daycare setting. My four years of professional babysitting along with my education have prepared me well for the role. I have experience caring for all types of children including ones who have special needs and I understand what is required when dealing with wheelchairs and feeding tubes.
I am extremely patient and have a terrific personality. Children respond very well to me and I enjoy caring for them and designing educational playtime activities. I understand children can be messy and know that that is part of their learning process.
I would love to come on board at Happy Feet Daycare as your new teacher. Please contact me for an interview as soon as possible as I am very excited about the job. I have enclosed my resume along with three letters of reference.
I would like to inquire about the possibility of being able to join your team of Child Care specialists as an assistant at (name of the company/day care school). I passed by in person the other day and learnt that there is no current opening for such a position but was informed to submit my request formally in writing, just in case!
I have been working as a Child Day Care assistant for (number) years now, and am currently employed at (place of employment) where I have been for the last (length of time). I am very happy there but I now am looking for a change after I recently moved homes. My work is now unfortunately too much of a commute for me and I would much prefer to be closer to work to be able to make the most of my workday and personal family life.
(name of the target company) is only a 10-minute walk from my house making it a very appealing alternative for me.
I am extremely qualified in a wide range of fulltime, day care/child care responsibilities such as indoor or outdoor activity organization, diaper changing, keeping a clear and organized feeding and snack time schedule as well as starting a toddler out on their potty training needs. I am passionate about children and love being around them no matter what age. I have gained my experience through life rather than through studies but this has not so far hindered me in my career choice.
Many daycare centers tend to have a high ratio of child to child care assistant to maximize their earnings, but one thing which I highly admire at (name of target company) is you pride yourselves on specializing in smaller, more personal groups, with a maximum of (number) children per child care assistant.
I would like to thank you for your time today in reading my letter.
Please find enclosed my Resume and career history.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
