Interview questions for a Nursery Nurse

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by CloakandWings, Jun 12, 2009.

  1. Hi, we have not had to interview before and the LEA has no guidance on suitable questions for interviewing a Nursery Nurse. Does anyone have a list or any ideas as to what we should ask?

    Thanks C
  2. What is it you like about working with children.
    Give an example of an activity that worked well with children.
    How do you develop chidlren's language and why is talking to chidlren so important
    How do you support the needs of individuals- give an example form your expereince perhaps.
    Why is observing children playing important
    How would you set out a roon in the morning, Which resources might you choose and why
    Do you have any specail skills and talents that you could share.
    If a chid needs reminding about behaviour- how would you go about this
    How would you deal with conflict amongst children- give candidate scenario perhaps.
    How would you establish and maintain relationships with parents and respect confidentiality.
    How does your role differ from that of teacher
    What would you do if parent apprached you about a child's progress-
    What would you do if child made a disclosure
    Do you have or would you train for 12 hour paed first aid. What would you do if a chid had an accident and you were alone in the room.
    Also give them opportunity to ask questions too- as this often tell you a lot about the candidate.
  3. hi Would you tell me what are the best answers to this questions? Thank you

  4. Let me turn it round and ask,"What answers would you give?" Then other posters could tell you if you are on the right tracks. There might be different opinions.
    Many of these questions are meant to encourage candidates to show their unique approaches and talents and give them oppportunity to share relevant work experiences.
    If you are not sure of any answer such as the behaviour management or working with parents, it is ok to say would seek advice or refer to the school policies to makes sure but from personal experience you would feel that....
    Mug up on the factual answers to the disclosure question and learning through play perhaps.
    Also mug up on the setting you are a candidate for just in case they ask you why you want to work there. Even if they don't ask try and get it in.

  6. Thanks so much for this - you're a gem! x
