If you do not have and prior work experience, you will still be able to use your Early Childhood Assistant Cover Letter to highlight your specific skills, education, abilities and knowledge you have gained through school, training, part-time work experience programs or voluntary positions. Also, you may mention your experience and participation in the growth of your younger siblings.

The letter must be brief and must not go beyond one page. You’ll need to write only three paragraphs that describe these key selling points. Mention you skills and abilities in the second paragraph in a bulleted format. This will grab the attention of prospective employer and increase your chances of getting job. Have a look at the following example which will give you assistance in preparing your cover letter.

Besides early childhood assistant, this template is useful for the following similar job titles:
• Early Childhood Educator (E.C.E.)
• Preschool Helper
• Child Care Worker Assistant
• Day care Worker
• Day-care Helper
