I am a recent graduate of the Early Childhood Early Childhood Educator Diploma program at Centennial College, where my studies provided me with both practical and theoretical experience in assessing the developmental needs of children. My past English teaching experience with Lantian English Training School in China also allowed me to gain excellent skills in working with children. I believe that such experience will contribute greatly to this position when dealing with parents and children. It would be a pleasure to be part of the Jingbao Bilingual children’s Centre. Your innovative program of creating a safe, comfortable, and enriched dual language, immersion environment in which to learn and play, while developing Mandarin as a second language, is something I feel I would like to take part in. Empowering children to believe in their abilities, gain appreciation of different cultures and become open-minded, lifelong learners sets your centre apart from others. The opportunity to work in an environment that will assist in the physical, emotional and intellectual development of children, at the same time building a strong foundation and preparation for school would be a privilege for me. I would welcome the opportunity of a personal interview with you to review my childcare portfolio and qualifications for this exciting employment opportunity.
