    Pre-K Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at La Petite Academy (Federal Way, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was great. The director is very friendly and wants to see staff grow. Also all the ideas that I want to implement and use in the program were welcomed along with the curriculum that is already set and the main goal is to make sure the children are reaching each Milestone to help them grow and develop into a strong learning experience for them to carry on to the next level of their Scholastic lives.

    Assistant Teacher Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at La Petite Academy (Iowa City, IA).

    Interview

    I went in to the daycare for the interview and after all the questions they gave me a tour. I actually interviewed with the assistant director instead of the director which was interesting because in my prior daycare interviews I had interviewed with the director (she was there when I went in and was not busy doing anything so I'm not sure why she didn't interview me). They asked me about past experiences and gave me situations to see how I would respond to them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at La Petite Academy (Brandon, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was quite easy; she presented me with a lot of scenarios that could happen at the facility and I had to tell her what I would do. A lot of my answers came from my experience working at other child care facilities, but there were also some that I really had to think on my feet for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at La Petite Academy in May 2016.

    Interview

    They contacted me several days after I applied online, and the assistant I spoke with just asked me general questions over the phone. I received a call the following day asking to set up an interview time. The interview was conducted very poorly. The director asked me maybe 4 or 5 questions (mostly just situational questions) while the assistant rated my answers on a sheet of paper. The interview lasted little more than 5 minutes, and the interviewer asked very vague questions and did not answer any of the questions I had for her. They did not give me any information about how or when I would possibly be contacted following the interview. I have 4 years of experience in a licensed childcare facility and many more years of experience with children. I was very disappointed with how the entire process was handled.

    Interview

    You come in and you get asked questions about your experience in the field and how you would react to certain situations? For example did you ever have issues with a coworker? How did you solve some issues you encountered at work? They don't believe in time out so how would you deal with a child that has a meltdown?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at La Petite Academy (Waunakee, WI) in June 2014.

    Interview

    After I sent in my resume and cover letter, I was told to take an assessment online. It laid out specific situations and asked you to pick the choice that best describes what you would do in that situation. Some questions asked you to rate yourself against others on how well you could perform a math problem dealing with decimals, fractions. The assessment took about an hour and a half, if I remember correctly. The last part of the assessment tested calendar and chart reading skills. You had a specific amount of time to answer roughly 40 questions. The following morning, I received a call to come in for an interview. I met with the director a few days later. It took a long time for them to make a decision, but I never heard back.
