Lisa asks…

what kind of interview question would they ask? (baby day care center)?

I am just curious before I start applying.. Also what position is that>? nanny? baby sitter?

The Expert answers:

I just got a job at a daycare. You should be working at a daycare with babies, not children, maybe toddlers and infants. They asked me for criminal history, my education (I’m still in highschool), a certain vaccine I need to have. It’s pretty basic. They also gave me a simple test on reading, spelling, and math. I’m sure it also depends on different states, but the laws can’t be sooo different.
