The resume should begin with stated career objectives that focus on both necessary skills and passion for the work. The first line should emphasize the worker's desire to compassionately provide care and to monitor the health and well-being of children. Other career objective lines should express a desire to direct and supervise children and to assist parents with various housekeeping tasks.

Beneath career objectives should be a brief list of key qualifications. These may include a brief summary of childcare field experience, infant and child CPR proficiency, experience with crisis prevention and intervention and the possession of a driver's license.

Beneath the qualifications should be a childcare expertise section that provides a number of bullet points expressing skills gained from education and employment. These skills might include experience dispensing medicine, preparing healthy meals, and working with special needs children.
