mamamanda Thank you for the link to nannyde's articles, blackcat! I hired the assistant and I'm very excited! I feel good about it and she seemed genuinely excited about the opportunity. She was happy with the hours I can offer right now and even stayed around to interact with the kids and help them with a painting project after we had finished talking business. Bonus: all of my kids here yesterday loved her! They kept asking when she's coming back and coloring pictures for her. I really feel confident that this will be a good experience for all of us! Thanks for the advice. The family I was supposed to interview had a sick kid yesterday so we rescheduled for later in the week. Hopefully that will go well also. That would put me at full enrollment!

renea I have gone to working interviews. You get a much better idea of how the person really is. I do several days until im ready to make the commitment to hire them.

We've discussed hours,pay, & responsibilities. What kinds of things do you ask? I'm excited. She will basically help with morning walks, craft time, & lunch prep/clean up. That will take so much stress off of me. I'm also interviewing for a new kiddo tomorrow. Fingers crossed!!!
NannyDe wrote a great 5 part series about this

I usually create a situation problem for them to lete know how they would solve it.

Like

Two dcks are fighting and pulling hair ( make it up). You have asked them to stop 2 times and they are still going at it. What would you do.

I would also ask if there's any reason why she wouldn't be able to get to work on time or prohibit her from doing the job

I can't think of anything else right now even though I ask a million questions lol
