You'll be fine - don't worry - play with the child and let the parent look at your paperwork then answer any questions they have

Simples! :)

Good luck :thumbsup:

Dont panic, you will be fine.

Make sure you interact with the child. I find that this goes a long way with parents.

Good luck:thumbsup:

Can I hold your hand? I've got a parent coming today as well at 4pm and I've not interviewed a stranger since last September. Any other mindees have come from people I know.
Fingers crossed for both of us :thumbsup:

Have a look at this, when I first started it really helped me to prepare for the questions I might be asked so I had the answers prepared.

I know have this in my welcome booklet as a starter for parents, it usually answers most of their questions.
