As the director of our facility, how important is a child's safety and what measures would you take to ensure parents that their children are being left and watched in great care?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Preschool Director interview

How to Answer

Safety is of the utmost importance! Tell the interviewer that proper safety is an essential element to directing a preschool. Talk about the need to have age appropriate structural safety rules such as no hitting or no running inside the building. Tell the interviewer that there always needs to be a proper number of adults supervising per number of children present, and each adult must go through a secure background check before being allowed to work with the children. Discuss the need for classrooms to be set up so that there is a main aisle for walking and for spills to be cleaned up right away. Finally, mention that security of the building and school grounds must be monitored, and that the school and parents should talk to preschoolers about 'stranger danger.'

The safety of every child in our care is paramount. The most important measure that can be taken is open and proper communication. Poor communication instills doubt, fear, and failure. I have many strong ideas on how to optimize our staff and center's communication skills as effectively and efficiently as possible, and even open more methods of communication throughout the day.

Always keeping an eye on the kids and provding the Child teacher Ratio according to the tittle 22 regulations.Paying attention to the kids is the main thing.

This the most important part of childcare. Parents entrust us to provide a safe and nurturing environment on a daily basis. In childcare we must make sure our staff is trained to meet all safety needs of the child and keep close supervision.

I would assure them of our PA Stars rating and accreditation. Our history could be focused upon. I would praise our teaching staff and their ongoing efforts. I would allow an open door policy. They can visit on a regular basis and we would hold family events. They can also call or email the classroom teachers as needed. I as a director would be readily available too. We would work as a center to provide daily documentation (via newsletter or a weekly recap). The document could be displayed as a hard copy and sent electronically.

Child's safety is a number one priority. As an educator it is our duty of care to provide a safe environment for children.
