Dear [Family’s Name] Family,
As someone who loves caring for children, I was delighted to see your recent advertisement on SitterCity.com seeking a babysitter in the Kansas City area. Looking after kids requires a lot of energy and attention to detail, but I enjoy it wholeheartedly. I passionately believe that 7 years of babysitting and lifeguard experience paired with my CPR certification make me a great candidate to be the newest caregiver for your little ones.
I currently babysit two young girls, who are 6 and 8 years old. I’ve helped both learn through educational games and assistance with homework, while also creating a calm, positive home atmosphere for when they’re not focused on school-related activities. During my 3 years with this family, I’ve received nothing but positive feedback from both parents and children. Unfortunately, they are moving out of state next month, but with change comes opportunity!
I truly have been blessed to enjoy a job where I can interact with kids on a daily basis. Over the past 7 years, I’ve:
- Babysat three children of two families without accident, incident, or severe injury.
- Became a close family friend of two parents whose daughter I babysat for four years. She’s now a precocious eight year old and is doing very well at school.
I’m also an avid reader of children’s literature, which I love drawing inspiration from to create new stories, activities, and games for the kids I babysit.
Working with children is sometimes challenging, but always fulfilling. I’m excited about the prospect of babysitting your boy and girl, and I’d love to meet them and see if you think I’d be a good fit for your family. I’m available by phone at (123) 456-4789 or via email — VictoriaClark@gmail.com.
Thank you for taking the time to review my application.
