The Job

Our school is now holding interviews for professional, responsible and multi-talented English teachers who love young learners aged 2 to 6 years old. We opened our first school in one of the most family-oriented neighborhoods in Shanghai in 2012. Since then, we have been providing high-quality preschool education to more than a hundred families and we are still growing continually with a new branch opening this year. We offer an equal opportunity to candidates and we hire based on skill and merit. On top of all qualifications though, we are interested in teachers who first and foremost love children. If you have these qualities, wait no more and start the process of your application.

Our company welcomes every teacher’s talents and unique abilities. We provide room for you to exercise your gifts and the opportunity to shine. We have carefully designed our early childhood program and we continually develop them to cater to young learners who are by nature, curious, creative and full of imagination. It is our responsibility as educators to foster this and offer an environment that directly supports these ideals. The school’s curricula comprise of a multitude of thought-provoking and inspiring activities to stimulate early brain development and creativity. To offer a true bilingual experience, a local Chinese and a foreign teacher work alongside one another and deliver the lessons in both English and Chinese. We also provide beautiful and modern facilities for each young learner to grow cognitively, emotionally, physical and socially. Our programs provide them access to plenty of hands-on-learning such as art classes, handicrafts, cooking classes, circle time and play time. All curriculums have already been planned by one of our coordinators from Canada and teachers only need to prepare the activities and materials needed for every class.

Shanghai – The City

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago, it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghai’s colonial past featuring grand European architecture.

For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals’ daily life.
