Dear Ms Buckingham
Re: Early Childhood Teacher position
I am writing to apply for the position of Early Childhood Teacher at the Children’s Nook as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
I am a dedicated and qualified early childhood teacher with a passion for children’s learning and care, and experience working in preschool environments with children aged two-to-five. I am currently employed as a teacher at Child’s Play Preschool in Adelaide.
In my current role I am responsible for delivering creative learning and play activities to up to 15 children aged three-to-five. I also work with other teachers to help craft the centre’s curricula. I have developed strong skills in creating fun and interactive learning activities and materials, observing and reporting on child development and conduct, and developing solid rapport with children, families and staff.
At Child’s Play I have developed what is now an important part of the curriculum for three-to-four year olds: a program called ‘Insects Alive!’ which focuses on the development of numeracy, creative mimicry/movement and language skills. It is a favourite with staff and kids alike.
In addition to being a very organised teacher, I am creative and enthusiastic, and sensitive to children’s individual needs. I possess excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, as well as solid computer skills.
I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). I also hold a current first aid certificate, including anaphylaxis and asthma training, and a clear Working With Children and medical check.
I believe that the quality of education a person receives in early life is indispensable in bringing out that person’s potential, and that all children should have access to quality learning and care. These notions are encapsulated in the Early Years Learning Framework, whose principles I fully support.
I believe that I would be a valuable addition to the team at the Children’s Nook – a place where I can continue to help kids learn in a fun, creative and safe environment, and contribute to their growth and wellbeing.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
