Hello, my name is Novlet Portrick, and I am interested in the nanny position that you are currently looking to fill. I believe that I have the qualifications that you are looking for, as I am a caring and compassionate person. I have also spent the majority of my nanny career in providing newborn/adolescent care.
Being both a parent as well as a nanny, has given me the opportunity to show my desire to be nurturing to children. I enjoy assisting children in helping them discover themselves, life's daily challenges, also to help them make good choices- and learn from the bad ones as well! As far as credentials - I have been certified in Pediatric and Adult Health Saver First Aid/CPR by the American Heart Association. In addition - I have experience working with "special needs" children. In addition, I am a NJ licensed driver with my own vehicle to utilize for any transportation responsibilities that may be assigned to me - minus gas, tolls, etc. I also have a valid passport for travel abroad. As a result of my experience, I am seeking a salary requirement of $15-$20 per hour.
I hope that I have given you a brief overview of myself, so that you can make a sound decision as to consider me to be the right nanny for your family. In me you get a person who is honest, reliable, patient and hard-working. I am also genuinely committed to the success and happiness of your children. Please feel free to contact me anytime, to discuss your needs and expectations further. I thank you for the opportunity in advance.

Our family has been incredibly fortunate to have Novlet join us. Unfortunately, our daughter will be attending day care, starting in September, joining her older sister.
Novlet is a truly special caregiver. A rare blend of caring, loving, professionalism, expertise and common sense. Our daughter was born very prematurely, at 29 weeks. She consequently requires daily physical therapy in order to help her develop her gross and fine motor skills. We were skeptical about finding someone who would be willing and capable of working with our daughter each day. Thanks to Novlet's dedication and skill, our daughter is now rolling over and sitting on her own. Novlet follows our daughter's physical therapist's instructions to the letter. Novlet adores our daughter, and our daughter's successes are her successes. Our daughter's progress brings tears to my eyes, and given that my husband and I work full time, our daughter's progress is nearly entirely thanks to Novlet.
Novlet is also a working parent, and she appreciates the challenges faced by working parents. She is reliable, arrives on time, and does what she says she will do. She consistently goes above and beyond. It honestly breaks my heart that our daughter will be attending day care in September, but private, at-home care was not an expense we anticipated. Thanks to Novlet, our daughter will be well-equipped to make the transition.
Novlet is a true professional. There is a long list of issues we simply don't need to think twice about when we leave our daughter in Novlet care each day. We trust her to manage any emergency that should arise. She is CPR certified. We know our daughter will not languish in a crib while a sitter chats on the phone all day - quite the opposite, in fact. Unless she is asleep, our daughter is playing, doing physical therapy, being read to...and engaging and laughing. Our daughter lights up with smiles and laughter as soon as she sees Novlet.
