I'd like some parents to read an email I've been sending out to families looking for child care and give, and give their thoughts on it. Thanks!

If you need another mum to look over it, you can PM me as well, if you like.

I'm currently in the process of hiring child care for my daughter, so if you need anymore feedback I'd be happy to look at it.

If you want a different perspective, I was a kid who grew up with (live in) nannies. Though, I don't have any kids myself yet.

^ I really appreciate the offer, but I'm specifically looking for feedback from parents because they would be the ones responsible for responding to the letter. Thank you though! :)

I've gotten pretty consistent feedback from everyone, and I'm going to work on all the suggestions that were given. You've all been very helpful and I appreciate it so much.

I have a bit of an update. I found out today that the website I've been replying to job listings on is more or less useless. I was reading replies to articles on the site, and discovered that just about everyone on the site has had the same issue I've had - getting no responses to job applications. Well, it turns out that people looking for caregivers cannot respond to applications without paying a fee. It seems many are unaware of this fact when they post their ad, and are unwilling to pay the fee when they find out. So basically I've wasted A LOT of time and effort looking for jobs on that website.

HOWEVER, the letter that everyone on this thread has reviewed still can be useful in replying to job postings on other websites, so I will focus my efforts elsewhere from now on.
