(Substitute your own information here.) We are looking for a full-time nanny to provide child care for two children. The position would involve arriving at our house by 7:30 a.m. and helping to get the children off to school (supervising dressing and toileting, packing school bags, making breakfast, packing lunch, etc.). During the morning you would be asked to perform housekeeping tasks (vacuuming, dusting, laundry, etc.). In the afternoon, one of the children will be returning home, and at this point the focus would be on child care (reading, playing, making lunch, planning activities, etc.). The second child will be home later in the afternoon, and the position would end around 6:30 p.m.
Does this sound like the type of position you are looking for?_
What experience have you had with children? With what ages? (This could include care for younger siblings; raising own children; working in a school, child care, or camp setting; babysitting, etc.)_
Are you currently or have you ever worked as a full-time nanny? How long were you/have you been in this position? Why did you leave or why are you leaving this position?_
What training or education have you had in the field of child care?
Are you currently employed? If so, where? If not, where was your last position?
Why are you interested in working with children?
Do you ever smoke? _
Do you have a valid driver's license?_
Have you had CPR and/or first-aid training?_
Do you have any health problems that might affect your job performance?
Thank you for calling. If we are interested in a personal interview, we will call you. Would you be able to supply the names of three to six references (at least two of which have seen you work with children), as well as the name and number of your most recent employer?
