60 Child Attendant Questions and Answers:

1 :: Explain would you apply the same principles in bringing up your wards, as you were subjected to?

Never. It doesn’t make sense. Things have changed drastically. A reasonable amount of discipline is very important but pulling strings too hard can actually have an adverse effect on children of today. I always keep a balance of discipline, understanding and leeway.

2 :: Explain what do you expect that you will be doing as a child care aide at our organization?

Ensuring a healthy, safe and nurturing environment will be my prime responsibility. In addition to this, I expect to foster children’s social, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth by providing them with a comfortable and caring environment. Assisting students in meeting their learning and social interaction objectives is also something that I expect to do.

3 :: Tell me what made you decide that you wanted to work as a foster care worker?

I have lived in foster homes since I was 5 years old, after the untimely demise of both my parents. Having been through the system myself, I recognized and appreciated the limitations of the foster care system, and it was inherently important for me to contribute something to make it a better one for children who have to go through it now. Initially, this was my motivation to take up a career as a foster care worker.

4 :: Tell me what is your background with children?

I have provided care to newborn babies and children aged up to 10 years. I can handle children’s personal and nutritional needs perfectly and have helped older children with homework as well. Since I have been a child caregiver for 12 years, I have seen, experienced and managed even the toughest situations with children quite easily.

5 :: Explain how do you handle child care? What is your mantra?

There really is no mantra. Each child that I look after and teach is an individual with his or her own personality and specific needs. While I create a wide curriculum, each module of the curriculum has leeway for individual incorporation. And that is how I handle adapted child care.

6 :: Tell me what are your skills in special education?

I have worked with children with special needs in the past. Understanding their specific requirements – both physical and emotional – and devising plans to meet them is something that I am quite good with. Additionally, I am in the process of gaining certification in special education, which I am sure will make me better equipped to handle special education activities.

7 :: Tell me so how did you handle the situation?

After much difficulty, I managed to find a counselor who could reach out to the child. The process was not smooth, but after 2 years of constant counseling, his transformation was amazing. And the family that he is now placed with is extremely happy with him!

8 :: Please explain why do you want to work with us?

Gather some background information regarding the hiring firm first and then answer the question by stating some features of the firm that help them standout form other firms. For example: ‘I have always heard well about the childcare services provided by this firm. Since I am a passionate and dedicated child care giver, I couldn’t think of a better place to join’.

9 :: Tell us as far as preliminary education is concerned, how to you handle your wards?

I employ a school-readiness program for children not yet of school going age. Teaching them language and numbers using appropriate preschool methods is my feat.

10 :: Tell me what specific duties have you been performing as a child advocate?

While working as a child advocate, I have been responsible for assessing my clients’ situations, gauging threats to them, creating and implementing plans to avert them, providing advocacy in front of services and courts, and providing counseling to them to ensure their physical and mental / emotional wellbeing.
