      Ask the right questions

        Once you’ve read through applications, it is time to conduct interviews. Some questions to ask candidates include: 

        • What kind of work are they looking for? Short-term, casual work, part-time or full-time?
        • How would they define success in the role of an early childhood educator?
        • How have they handled confrontations with unhappy parents and families in the past?

        Here are some more questions to ask curated by Workable. 

        Observe interactions

          Observe how childcare educators interact with children and their peers. This allows you to understand how they handle various situations, and how they fit in with the existing team dynamic. 

          Finding quality childcare educators requires careful planning, thorough screening, and a commitment to finding the best fit for your childcare centre. At Save Our Service, this is our bread and butter, we can support you in finding the perfect educator for your centre.
