Discussion in 'Early Years' started by susiec08, Jun 27, 2011.

  1. I have an interview tomorrow for a reception post. I was thinking about what types of questions I might be asked and came up with the usual safeguarding, SEN, G&T etc. Can you lovely people think of any that might be specically EYFS based?

    How many nurseries / pre-schools feed the school?
    Will you be doing home visits in September?
