About the Teachers of Early Years (Expat and Chinese Bilingual) roles
The kindergarten caters for students aged 3 to 6 and operates a bilingual curriculum based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage integrated with elements of the Chinese curriculum. There is a shared pedagogical approach throughout the campus, enabling Chinese and expatriate students to benefit enormously from the cross-cultural exposure.
Our bilingual kindergarten offers an activities-based curriculum delivered in both Chinese and English for pupils aged 3-6 years. The curriculum integrates the best practices from the Chinese and international education systems to prepare children for Grade 1 and beyond. Seamless interdisciplinary education is intertwined with an introduction to core critical skill sets.
Kindergarten pupils develop self-regulation skills within a culture of inquiry and build strong foundations for learning in all areas. Playing and exploring, active learning and creative-thinking are central to the programme.
Lessons and activities are held both inside and outside the classroom. Classes operate in pairs for each age group and each class is staffed by one Chinese teacher and one international teacher with additional assistant support. This allows teachers to support each other in planning, delivery of the curriculum and the development of each child’s English and Chinese language skills.
This exciting and challenging role commands a highly competitive salary and benefits package. Tuition support is provided for any successful applicant with school-age children. The position is offered on an initial three-year contract term with annual renewal thereafter.
Applications are invited from candidates with:
- Experience in primary education and a passion for the opportunities a bilingual program provides for children.
- The ability to work collaboratively and contribute to the development of an outstanding school.
