Over the course of fifteen years as a Daycare Provider/Director, I have built a successful career in the child care industry. Yet, I am seeking to transition into a Director Position that will effectively maximize my experiences. I believe the knowledge and skills I have developed would be a great fit for a Child Care Director’s position at your facility.
I am a proven leader with a strong recorded of exceeding goals and expectations. My experience and educational background have prepared me for this career move and some key proficiency to bring with my transition.
While at first glance I may not seem to fit your typical candidate profile. I am confident that my skills in communication, staff management and detail orientation would indeed be an excellent match for this position.
