Dear Mr. and Mrs. David Brown,

I would like to apply for the position as a Nanny, which you advertised on My résumé is attached for your consideration. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

I have over 5 years of experience as a Nanny. I previously was the Nanny for three children whose ages ranged from 4-10. It is due to their family’s decision to move to another city because of a better job opportunity, that I am available to take on this new position. Having been their Nanny for over 5 years has caused me to gain patience, energy, and skills in caretaking. Some of my duties included preparing all the children’s meals taking the older children to and from school, washing and ironing their clothes, making their beds, playing games with them, reading books to them, and providing assistance with their homework if needed. (Describe previous experience including the amount of years holding that position and the duties it required. You can also briefly mention the reasons for the job terminating with the previous employer.)

My experience has caused me to be proficient in cooking, cleaning, catering to each child’s individual needs. My strength lies in multitasking, which is a key trait when dealing with multiple children. I have mastered time management, which is especially beneficial when giving each child his or her individual attention. I respect any decisions you make in terms of how you want things to run with your children. I promise to care for them to the best of my ability. As their Nanny, I assure you they will be my top priority. (Explain what skills you have gained from your experience. Show your understanding of the fact that while they are your employers, they are also the parents of the children, so they make the ultimate decisions regarding them.)

Being a nanny is rewarding in the sense that it provides a mutual learning experience. With my passion and qualifications for the job, I feel I am a good candidate.

I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can discuss parenting styles, regulations, or any other concerns. (Express gratitude for their time.)
