Explain what you would do in case of an emergency?I would first phone emergency services, stabilise the child and let the parents know what has happened.
What is the most difficult situation you have encountered while caring for a child? How did you handle it?I did my practical at Somerset college. I was dealing with high school children. One of the children declared to me and the rest of the class, that he did not need to listen to me as he was paying my salary. He was very rude. I remained calm and sent him to the principles office. 
What is your approach to discipline?It depends entirely situation and the child. Sometimes it works to ignore a problem, other times one may need to apply removal of privileges. I employ a philosophy of mutual respect. 

How would you handle:

A two year old having a tantrum?I would remove the child from the situation. Calming them down.
A 5 year old drawing on a wall?I would explain there are consequences to drawing on walls, that the proper place to draw is on paper. I would then get the child to assist me in cleaning it and provide a warning regarding repeat offences, for example, if you draw on the wall again, not only will you need to assist to clean it off, but we will not be able to go and play outside in the afternoon etc.
An 8 year old refusing to do homework?I would offer a reward system for completion and make the homework a fun activity. Doing it with them in order to gauge their enthusiasm.
