Nanny Cover Letter

Nanny Cover Letter Sample 1: 

I am writing to submit my resume for the after school nanny position for your three children, Samantha, John, and Emily. I read the advertisement you posted on nanniesforhire.com with great excitement, and believe I would be the perfect fit for your family.

As a nanny, I have years of experience caring for children of all ages, from infants to preteens. In my previous role as daytime nanny to a busy family of five children, I learned how difficult it can be to manage the varying needs of children in diverse stages of development. I honed the ability to care for each child individually, while paying close attention to the needs of the group.

I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care. As a camp counselor for three summers at a camp for underprivileged children, I provided weekly music lessons geared towards children in the 7 – 10 age group. Hearing children make music together is a uniquely rewarding experience I’ll always remember.

You mentioned in your advertisement that you’re particularly interested in a nanny who can help improve your children’s ability to speak French. Having spent a semester abroad in Provence during my junior year of college, I am a fluent speaker of French, and would be more than happy to help increase your children’s proficiency in the language.

I take safety extremely seriously, and am trained and certified in childhood first-aid and CPR. I am also a long-standing member of the National American Association of Child Care Providers, and participate frequently in training seminars on the newest developments in the field of child care.

I would love to speak with you personally about your family’s needs. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or by email. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be considered for the position, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Nanny Cover Letter Sample 2: 

I understand that you are looking for a nanny for your three children aged 9 years, 6 years, and 5 months. Ms. Kindell, who was your children’s nanny some years back, informed me about your requirement and believes I have the qualification and qualities to meet your expectations.

As you can see from my resume, attached with this application, I have had more than 8 years of experience in caring for young children. My current job involves taking care of a 7 month baby of Mr. and Mrs. Reed, residents of Park Avenue St whose number I can provide if needed.

Taking care of young children, especially babies, is rewarding but sometimes challenging. Over the years, I have developed special techniques that prove useful in calming young babies, including the most restless ones. I am in favor of a structured day as it gives children an opportunity to follow a schedule and to learn and understand discipline.

All my employers, including my present employer, have been happy with my work and have often complemented me on my expertise in taking care of young children. I completed a CPR and First Aid training before I took my first job as nanny and have since then kept my certifications up to date. I believe such knowledge is important for a nanny and can be a life saver in case of an injury or accident.

I am looking for a position for nanny that also provides me a place to live. My 8 years of experience in this field and education, I feel make me a good candidate for the position. I do not mind doing household chores that do not correlate to the care of children. I have a friendly and pleasing demeanor and enjoy working with others.

I understand from your ad you are looking for an experienced, qualified, and caring nanny for your two young children, a boy of 9 and a girl of 5. I meet all your listed requirements and believe would make a good nanny for your 2 children.

As my attached resume shows, I have 6 years of experience as a nanny for two families. Besides my application and resume, I am attaching letters of recommendation from both my employers, who have complemented me for my responsible, mature, and professional way of caring for their young children.

In addition to two full-time nanny positions, I have worked as a part-time babysitter for several families during my high school days. This experience and the fact that I had three younger siblings to care and cook for have helped me develop exceptional child caring skills.

I love children and enjoy their company immensely and find nothing is more rewarding than taking care of them. I believe in creating a positive, happy environment for children, one in which they feel protected and can thrive. I have good organizational and communication skills, which I believe are among the most important skills for a nanny.

I don’t mind doing extra duties for you, like cleaning and cooking dinner for the entire family. I work well with other people, thanks to my friendly and caring nature, and am sure I will make a good team with your other household employees.
