  • Preschool Teachers

    We are seeking Preschool Teachers for our new school development, Shanghai Huaer Collegiate School, in Kunshan, China. The positions have an August 2020 start.

    Huaer Collegiate has been developed in partnership with the No. 2 High School of East China Normal University, commonly referred to in Chinese as Huaer.

    East China Normal University is known as the premier teacher training university in China, and its affiliated high school has a long-established reputation for its progressive approach to the development of teaching and learning.

    This is Dipont’s third independent school project, following the successful establishment of RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou and Nanwai King’s College School Wuxi.

    The campus in Kunshan is nearing completion and, at capacity, will provide an outstanding learning environment for 2,800 scholars and feature state-of-the-art science laboratories, a performing arts center with an 800-seat theater, and first-class sports complexes.

    The school is enrolling students for September 2020 and opening up a range of teaching positions from preschool to 10th grade. By 2022, the school will grow into a full upper school through 12th grade, offering AP classes and advanced specialized electives in all subject areas over the following two years.

    Preschool (ages 2-6)

    The preschool will enact a custom program that is grounded in evidence-based theories of education, using curriculum frameworks from China, England and America. Educators in the preschool will value inquiry-led, project-based learning that places the child at its center. We teach children how to learn as much as teaching them what to learn. Therefore, we look for Preschool Teachers who are committed to equipping our youngest scholars to become resilient, adaptable, enlightened and ethical, ready to embrace an ever-changing world with vigor.

    What we are looking for

    Educational leaders should embody the same high standards and dispositions we expect our graduates to model: to be a resilient scholar, adaptable ambassador, enlightened communicator and ethical visionary.

    Therefore, every educator will be expected to contribute actively to the whole life of the school, working with scholars beyond the classroom in advisory, co-curricular and residential programs.

    We are building a diverse, enthusiastic and highly supportive community of teachers who are committed to academic excellence and the creation of opportunities for scholars to take charge of their learning with daring optimism and drive.

    We are seeking to appoint a highly talented faculty who can share in our ethos – enjoying collaboration and learning, embracing cross-cultural adaptability, and sharing a resilient and ethical passion for developing an outstanding college preparatory school.

    The positions come with a competitive salary and benefits package including flights for spouse and dependents, medical and accident insurance for spouse and dependents, and a housing allowance.
