ESL Jobs in Shenzhen

We are now recruiting a committed, experienced and visionary Club Director. The Club Director is responsible for the overall success of one of our sites in Shenzhen. He or she executes the vision of a high-quality, innovative yet standardized, and sustainable early childhood educational program through hiring, training, and mentoring capable teachers. You will be a leader who takes full responsibility for strategic planning, enrollment, educational services, keeping within budgets, safety, and the facility.

We are a western-managed, fully licensed international school which aims to develop character, cultivate creativity and build courage in our young learners. We believe that quality education is an excellent foundation to build a child’s successful future. In our 2 schools in Shenzhen, we strive to develop our students’ good habits and cultural awareness, and allow them to explore, think critically and be independent, responsible, earnest and compassionate.

Since our learners are still very young, we put strong focus on teaching art and music. We use the Houghton Mifflin curriculum, “Journeys”, the world’s most recognized English literature to give our learners a thorough English language learning journey. The system we use is very similar to that used in kindergartens in the United States.
