I need your help. For my next child development course paper, I am to<br><br>
interview a novice and an expert childcare professional.<br><br>
What would be some good questions besides the usual,"How long have<br><br>
you worked with children?" etc...?<br><br>
Thanks.

Are the activities provided for children developmentally appropriate for their age?<br><br>
What are your thoughts on free play in a childcare environment?<br><br>
Describe your experiences in observing children's social, emotional, mental, physical, and cognitive development.

I'm moving this to Raising Vegetarian Children because I think you'll get more responses in there.

Give them common/possible scenarios and ask how they would deal with them.<br><br><br><br>
A child bites another child. What would they do?<br><br>
Eg... comfort the wounded child, tend to any injuries, hygenically clean any blood spills, speak to the biter, inform bitten childs parents, keep the biters identity confidential..etc.<br><br><br><br>
A child gets sunburnt at your centre. The parents are angry and they confront you. What do you do?<br><br>
A child bring in photos from their beach holiday. How do you incorporate this into the program?<br><br><br><br>
Etc etc <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Also:<br><br><br><br>
How do you program?<br><br>
What developmental areas do you take observations in?<br><br>
What is their child development philosophy?<br><br>
What tips would you give parents who are starting their kids in childcare?<br><br>
Whats the most rewarding experience you've had?<br><br>
What books, CDs, educational toy would you recommend for people looking to buy gifts for young children?<br><br>
What type of training/experience do you have?<br><br>
What advice would you give people looking to get into childcare?<br><br><br><br>
Sorry I could probably think of more but my brain is a little fried from a long hot day working with 3 year olds!
