Hi everyone - please help.

 

i am a childminder at the moment but thinking about applying for work in a nursery. i have seen a job advertised for a nursery officer - might sound thick here so apologies in advance..... but.... what are the differences between a nursery nurse and a nursery officer and also just incase whta sort of things would be asked at interview?

In my experience, the term nursery officer is just a variation on the term nursery nurse. I wouldn't expect the questions would be too different.

 

I would expect you would be asked things about safeguarding, health and safety, EYFS, parent partnerships, maybe asked to give an example of an activity or experience you have offered children in the past.

 

Good luck, let us know how you get on!

hi

Yes they are the same!

You may be asked all of what Clare suggested and questions like- if a 2year old child started at nursery and was really shy and quiet how would you help that child to mix and join in with other children?

You might be asked to explain how you would plan an activity for a child who had sight problems/ speech problem etc.

Good luck if you decide to apply for it! unsworth

got a call today for references and to ask if i can go in tomorrow and spend two hours in the nursery so they can see how i interact with children and staff! said they were really impressed with the interview but still not got a solid yes yet!

You'll be fine - they're still children, which is your "specialist subject!" :o

 

Good Luck!
