Cover Letter for Nursery School Teacher

Here's a cover letter sample for a nursery school teacher who is fresh out of school. With her new childcare credential, Belinda is ready to get to work. Notice how she says that she's open to any role that the school's Human Resources director needs to fill.

This hardcopy letter would also work well as an email message. In that case, Belinda would need to remove the dates and inside addresses. There would also be a few edits to the body of the letter. For example, she would refer to the “enclosed resume” as the “attached resume.” She could also delete "Enclosure: resume."

Dear Director,

A teaching position at your school has long been a career objective of mine. Now that I've earned my Texas Childcare Credential, I'm eager to apply for a position on your childcare team.

After reading my enclosed resume, please consider me for any appropriate position in your system. My desire to work with children is strong and I believe that once I join your staff, we will together discover my niche.

I will call you on Friday to learn what positions are open for the fall. Thank you!
