How to write a cover letter for a Childcare traineeship

  • Keep each letter short. So, no more than 3/4 of a page. Keep in mind that hiring managers have to go through hundreds of applications and resumes.
  • Send each letter to a specific person.
  • Use this application example for child care jobs. As it is simply a working with children cover letter. Including for a Child care Director, Educator, Teacher, Worker, Assistant Educator and Daycare Assistant Teacher. In addition to Early Preschool Teacher, Montessori Teacher and Early Childhood Education.
  • Also use this example whether you have experience or no experience at all.
  • Personalize each letter. Also, outline how your skills match the job ad.
  • Include skills such as ensuring safety of children, patience and empathy.
  • Avoid words such as believe or think.
  • Keep a copy of each letter or email that you send. 
  • Include a letter with each online job application.
  • Some online applications ask for expected salary. So, if asked, add that your expected salary is negotiable. But some online applications only allow a number.
  • Also see my resume writing coaching services.
  • I’ll be adding another sample soon.

How do I inquire about unadvertised early childhood jobs?

  • Contact different organizations to inquire about possible opportunities. 
  • Inquire by modifying the sample above and attaching your resume.
  • Also call organisations to ask if they have any unadvertised roles.
  • You can also inquire about non existing jobs or jobs which may become open in the future.
  • Also see my cold calling cover email sample.

Can you provide examples of cover letter for child care with no experience?

  • The above example is a general sample. And this same sample application letter above applies to writing a cover letter with no experience and when applying for child care traineeship with no experience.
  • Include any transferable skills from your other experience.

Avoid mentioning expected salary in 2023

  • Avoid writing about expected salary or your expected salary range in your application.
  • But if asked, add that your salary expectations are negotiable.
  • Also at the interview, be prepared to answer the expected salary question. As it is one of the most asked job interview questions.
  • Also, be more prepared for salary negotiations.
  • See my salary negotiation coaching and how to ask for a pay raise for women and men.

Check out these most asked job interview questions. Also see my professional interview coaching. 


Will be shortly adding more examples for Traineeship, Assistant Educator and Daycare Assistant.
