Dear Mr. Cutlass:

I am writing to apply for the position of Child Care Assistant that you have advertised on The Times of New York. With my extensive experience working with young children in a child care setting, good communication skills and current CPR Certification, I have the ability to become a key member of your team.

During 3 years’ work experience in childcare setting, I have acquired a number of skills pertinent to the job. For instance, I love developing curriculum and implementing them as appropriate to the children involved. I have also had the opportunity of staying with children on camps for weeks which has instilled in me the ability and experience to look after their needs including preparing meals and handling their hygiene needs. I do not only feel affection and enjoy the company of children but also understand how important child care activities are. My experience has taught me that children need to be looked after properly at every stage in their daily routine. In fact, how we take care of them today decides how their tomorrow is going to shape.

As a reliable and hard-working Child Care Assistant, I would like an an opportunity to meet with you and discuss this position further. I will call you in a few days as a follow up on my application. During the time in between, you may contact me on my cellular phone at (202) 666-7888 after 1 PM every week day and any time over the weekend.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
