Dear Mrs. Ishmael:
This letter is an expression of interest in the position of a Nanny that you have advertised on care.com. As a reliable, calm, confident and organized individual with over 10 years of experience as a nanny in part-time, full-time and live-in capacities, I have the ability to become an integral part of your family. The children that I was looking after in my last place of employment have just started school and my employment has come to an end which is why I am looking for a similar post.
I appreciate the fact that anyone on this position needs to have a certain type of personality which makes them successful in looking after children. I can boast of just such a personality as I possess a fun loving and nurturing nature. Since I have worked in this capacity for such a long time, I am highly skilled in utilizing techniques that are required in order to maintain children discipline and routines. In my previous place of work I was responsible for not just looking after children but providing help with lessons, managing meals for them, picking them up from school and entertain them until the parents returned from work in the evening.
I am confident that I am a reasonable choice for this Nanny position. You may check my references (enclosed) in order to support my claims of diligence and responsibility. I will call you in a few days to follow-up on this application. Thank you for your time and consideration in this regard.
