Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Manager’s Name],
I was happy to find your posting for an experienced caretaker / au pair at your home. Your children sound like wonderful kids and I would love the chance to help your family manage your busy schedules and be a part of your kids’ lives. I am certain I would be a great caretaker for your family as I have a great amount of experience and am a natural nurturer.
My background includes:
- Currently working towards a degree in Education at Sacramento State University.
- Six-plus years of au pair and babysitting experience.
- Volunteered at Sunny Kids Preschool as a teaching assistant.
- The second of nine children, I often helped to care for my own younger siblings.
My background and skills with young children make me a great fit for the caretaker role you are hoping to fill. I have a patient and caring demeanor, but am also authoritative and earn the respect and trust of children I work with.
Enclosed is my resume which further highlights my skills, experience, and academic background. I would be happy to visit you for coffee or lunch, or to come by your home to introduce myself. I know hiring someone to take care of your children can be a daunting experience, and I am willing to help make you comfortable in doing so. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon.
