Playgroup Leader Interview Questions


Recommended Posts

I am on my daughter's playgroup committeee and we are advertising for a new leader. What kind of questions should we be asking interviewees? It is a small and rural setting with children from aged 3 to 5 and half?

We are a committee run setting; do you have any prior experience of working with a committee?

What do you consider to be your strengths and weaknesses?

How would your work colleagues describe you?

Are you considering any further training?

Have you had any experience of a child protection issue at work?

If so how did you deal with it?

If not, can you tell us what you would do?

What do you think makes for a good team?

How would you handle conflict with another member of staff?

We have to set out and clear away furniture every day, how do you feel about this?

What safety issues do you think you would need to consider in reference to the above question?

Suppose a child in our setting keeps hitting, biting or pushing other children how would you deal with this?


We also take an 'area for improvement' from our Ofsted report and ask them how they would go about developing that issue.


Hope this is of use.

Good Luck with your interviews hope you get lots of candidates :o
