Your goal, when writing a cover letter for a child care position, must be to convince the employer that you are well qualified for the job. To do this successfully, you should know about the employer’s criteria and standards. It is recommended to read the employer issued job descriptions at least three times before starting to write the letter. The employer’s preferences should be kept in mind while writing.

Objective cover letter formats are very common these days since they are more clear and time saving. Such letters also consist of three paragraphs like regular cover letters, but the main body or middle paragraph is formatted objectively, i.e. in form of a table or using bullet points.
