Teach English in Shenzhen

Our international kindergarten is now recruiting committed, energetic and adventurous English teachers with a strong and genuine passion for teaching young learners aged 2 to 6. We are a western-managed school which aims to develop character, cultivate creativity and build up 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 help in developing our students’ good habits and cultural awareness, 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 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. The roles of foreign teachers are also similar to the roles of a teacher in America. They are to supervise play-time, learning-time, nap-time, lunch-time and many other activities throughout the day. Our teachers cooperate and communicate with each other in developing and innovating our system and curriculum to give our young learners’ a better learning experience.
