Dear Mr Fogarty
Re: Childcare Worker position
I am writing to apply for the Childcare Worker position advertised in the Greenview Telegraph on 2 November.
I have worked in a childcare centre for the last 20 months and found it a very rewarding experience. In my current job I have particularly enjoyed developing the play curriculum and planning and implementing sporting and craft activities for the children at Plainview Out Of School Hours (OOSH) Centre. Some of my successful activities have included the rotating sporting activities at the 'OOSHlympics' and the diary-making day and pottery day.
My social and friendly nature means I have a knack of connecting with children and adults from diverse backgrounds and I value the task of building community involvement, which I see as part of working in childcare. Child safety is always at the forefront of my mind and I am cool-headed in stressful situations.
I have a first aid certificate and a current Blue Card and police check. Attached please find my resume. Let me know if you need any more information.
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.
