Dear Mr. Johnson —

Being a nanny is more than just a job for me. As a young child, I was cared for by a nanny. And she was like a mother to me. To this very day she is very close with me. I aim to provide that same level of love and care to the children that I oversee. I'm very qualified and have more than a few certifications that can help you feel safe leaving children in my care. Here are some of the things I've been able to do as a previous Nanny:

Cared for three young 12-month, 3 years, and 6-year-old children.
Have CPR certification as well as some paramedic work in my previous history.
Understand the needs of parents when it comes to feeling secure about a nanny. Provide pictures and videos of daily activities and feeding.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
