Early Childhood Teacher interview

Post by wwy0011 » Thu Sep 10, 2020 6:21 pm

Hello everybody! Hope you're going well :)

I'm after some guidance regarding interviews for an ECT position. I've just had a phone interview and was just wondering if you were given these questions, how would you answer them (I feel like I didnt answer them too well).

1. How do you manage your time in a day of teaching?

2. What do you know about the workplace health & Safety regulations in an ECC?

3. How do you form meaningful relationships with children and their families?

4. How do you keep yourself updated on the latest government policies regarding childcare?

5. What can you tell me about the EYLF?

Thanks so much everyone, hope you're having a lovely day!! :)

Answer for question number 1, according to me:

I always organize the day by priorities. Strategically, I plan homework assignments that I have to do in other time than teaching on a day. Then I always try to plan for potential crises and I always keep some personal time for me to breathe out so that the work and personal front can be balanced well
