Re: Babysitter Position | Advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Wilson:

I am very interested in the after-school babysitter position posted on Monster.

You mentioned that your children are highly active, and that is my babysitting comfort zone. From driving children to and from sports activities to initiating and monitoring games and arts & crafts projects, I enjoy the challenge of managing multiple activities while ensuring the safety and well-being of children in my care.

Currently a senior at XYZ High School, I have 3 years of experience babysitting children ages 7 to 11. Valued for my dependability and sound judgment, I have become the weekend and “date night” babysitter of choice for several families in the Oak Ridge subdivision.

I strive to provide a warm, fun and nurturing environment in all babysitting assignments. My goal is for parents to experience worry-free time away from home knowing that their children are in competent hands.

I am an honor roll student; certified in first aid and CPR by the American Red Cross; and a licensed driver with a safe driving record, reliable transportation and a flexible afternoon and evening schedule.

Would you like to set up a meeting to see if I would be a good fit for you and your family? You can call me at 555-555-5555 or email Thank you for your time.

Lynn Myers
