Sample 2:

“Dear Mrs. Vanderbilt:

It is with sadness that I resign my position as the nanny for your three wonderful children. As I discussed with you previously, I applied for the Early Childhood Education Program at ABC University to finish my Bachelor’s degree and pursue my goal of being an elementary school teacher. I have just received official acceptance to the program and my first class starts September 9; therefore I must make my last day September 6 or before.

I am happy to do anything I can to help you find a suitable nanny for the children, and of course, I am more than willing to continue working until your new nanny is up to speed. It would be my pleasure to spend time with any nanny that you hire along with the children to help them adjust to each other if that is something that you would like. It is so important to me that your children have a calm and healthy transition from me to their new nanny.

I want to say what a pleasure it has been taking care of your children for the last 4 years. They are bright, well-behaved children, each with their special talents. I am sorry that I will not be there for them every day moving forward. This has been a heart-wrenching decision, but I believe I must move ahead in my career. I appreciate your encouragement when I first told you that I was considering returning to college to complete my degree. Your kind words motivated me and helped me muster the courage to make a firm decision and complete the college application.

I wish you and your children all the best in the years to come, and I hope it will be acceptable for me to visit you all occasionally as long as it will not upset them. I also want to thank you for employing me these past 4 years. It has been a privilege getting to know and work for you and your family, and the experience has been one of the most enriching of my life. I am eternally grateful.

Sincerely Yours,

Mary Baker

ABC Agency

Dear Ms. Doe:

Please accept this letter as a formal notice of my resignation from my position as Nanny for ABC Agency on 2-weeks’ notice, effective September 18.

After a lot of consideration, I have decided to accept a new job offer, which is near to my home. I feel it is time to take on new challenges and a good chance to pursue my career goals. Working with your clients was a great experience. The affiliation I have made with children will be memorable for years to come.

I am grateful for both the professional and personal growth opportunities and trust levels that have been given to me during my tenure.

I would like to thank you for all your guidance and support. It would be a pleasure for me to train my replacement or tie up any loose ends.

Mr. Alex Dew

7783 Westmore Avenue

Manchester, NH 67900

Dear Mr Dew:

It makes me very sad to write this letter of resignation from the position of Nanny for your family on a 1-week notice, effective April 1.

Working with your children and family was a great pleasure. Watching your children develop into young adults was an excellent experience, and I will miss every day I spent with them. On the other hand, I believe it is time to move on. Anna and John are grown up now, and I realize that very soon, you will not need my services anymore.

Even though I was not looking for another position, I have been offered an opportunity to work with a newborn, which I would like to take up. Obtaining this position will provide me with another great challenge over the next few years.

I will be available to help with the transition if you decide to hire an early childhood teacher. I would appreciate a letter of reference from you. I hope that I will continue to be a part of your family if needed in the future.

Best regards,


Alyssa McCain”

This letter is to notify you that I am resigning from XYZ Nanny Company as a nanny. December 22nd will be my last day of employment.

This wasn’t an easy decision, because I am grateful for the rewarding employment I’ve had with XYZ Nanny Company.

Please contact me if I can make the transition process proceed more smoothly.
