Job description

COVID-19 & China border updates: Schools across China reopened in June and are now holding interviews for teachers for December 2020 to June 2021 start dates. We are in contact with more and more schools that can obtain PU letters (invitation letters) for teachers, needed to apply for a work visa. If you are already in China, your start date could be as soon as within a few weeks. If you are outside of China, taking into account the interview process and visa application process, your earliest start date could be around March 2021. China has begun easing border restrictions and issuing work visas for some teachers outside China. Read more here –

ESL Jobs in Dalian

Our International Kindergarten is an education group operating in over a dozen countries, including mainland China where we opened our first school in 2001. We are currently seeking dedicated, energetic pre-school teachers for our modern, well-equipped kindergarten in the scenic Chinese city of Dalian (population 6,000,000). We are the only school of our kind in Northeast China to offer French, English and Mandarin as our teaching languages, and we currently require native English speakers.

Our location is within the Oriental Yosemite community in the Jin Shi Tan area, near the sea with a marina, beach and other attractions within walking distance. Our close proximity with Korea and Japan brings an influx of tourists and fun travel opportunities. Our school offers a pre-school program for toddlers and children age 2 to 6 years old with a diversified curriculum inspired from Jean Piaget, Maria Montessori and Howard Gardner.

We currently employ 9 foreign teachers at our school. Each teacher will have a Teaching Assistant in the classroom to assist with setting up activities and running the class. There will also be 2 Nursing Teachers in the class who are in charge of water for the kids, bathroom breaks, clothes, sleep and meal time. There is an average of 22 students per class. The school has a playground, library, multi-purpose room, music room, indoor gym and outdoor garden and petting farm and each classroom has a laptop connected to a 46 inch TV.

Actual teaching time is less than 2 hours per day although contact time with the students is between 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You will receive full training and orientation on arrival and there is on-going professional development through staff meetings and workshops on a weekly basis.

Our curriculum helps children expand their own unique gifts in eight key areas of intelligence: Word Smart (reading, writing and telling stories); Math Smart (logical thinking, patterns and numbers); Body Smart (expression through one’s body, movement and physical activity); Design Smart (visualization, building, drawing and design); Music Smart (rhythm, singing and creating music); Nature Smart (understanding of the natural world and living things); People Smart (group dynamics, sensitivity to others, leadership); Self Smart (awareness of personal feelings, thoughts and talents).
