Lead Pre-School Teacher Interview

Lead Pre-School Teacher
Hamilton Square, NJ

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at The Learning Experience in August 2013.

Interview Details – I was scheduled for an interview at 10AM. I had to fill out a paper application even though I applied online. After filling out the paper application, the assistant manager called me into the office for an interview. She was very sweet and asked me simple questions such as: Where do you see yourself professionally in 5 years? What are three strengths/weaknesses that you have? How would you handle an upset parent? After the interview, I went right into the classroom that I was interviewing for a working interview. I met the kids, talked to the other lead teacher in the classroom, and went on the playground with them. I stayed with them for about an hour.
The assistant teacher said that she loved me and asked me what hours I could work. She talked to me about the teacher that I would be working with and how they did co-teaching at their center. She asked me to come in next Monday so I could meet the director that was on vacation and discuss the hours that I would be working. That next Monday I came into meet the director, and unexpectedly, I had another working interview. She told me that she would call me that Wednesday. I never received a phone call.

Interview Question – All of the questions were pretty easy.   Answer Question

Interview Details – First they had me fill out a dinky application with very few questions on it. Then they asked me a few questions about myself and if I've had experience with parents, as well as my favorite age to teach.

Infant Lead Teacher Interview

Infant Lead Teacher

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at The Learning Experience in June 2010.

Interview Details – I received a paper application and filled it out immediately. I called the office within the following week, and was asked to come in person to interview. I felt that the interview questions were highly relevant to the position. i was asked about my personal relationships with children and child care in the past, why I would make a good teacher/educator/child care provider, etc. There were questions posed about hypothetical scenarios, especially regarding child safety. After I was offered the position, I had to complete a large amount of paperwork, receive vaccinations, and had to be finger printed and background checked (which the company paid for).

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Ask what your primary responsibilities will be and how they (the administration) plan to assist you during your time as an educator.
