Quote from Sacha Chadban, our Kindergarten Class Teacher from New Zealand:
“I have been working at We-kids kindergarten in Nanning, Guangxi Province for the past one year. I have found Webster Education Group to be a professional, well established organisation to work for. I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to work at the kindergarten. All staff members have treated me very well and made me feel like a valued member of their team. I am happy to be working and living in Nanning, Nanning is a lovely city with lots of fascinating places for me to explore. What has stood out the most for me during my time here is how friendly the people are. Everyone I have met has gone out of their way to make me feel comfortable and safe. Coming to China with my two children was really stepping out of our comfort zone and we were all nervous. I could not have chosen a better place to start our new adventure in China.”
Quote from Andrew Wesley, our English Language Teacher from the UK:
“After working with Webster Education for just over a year, I have come to realise that the key fundamentals to establishing the professional ethos it manages to maintain come from the following virtues; mutual respect and trust amongst employer and employees, stemming from a helpful and accommodating attitude. This professional and friendly approach towards its members of staff has the desired effect of establishing the same relationship between the Webster workforce and its clients. Only by empowering employees and accommodating for their needs can the same be done for students and clients. Webster Education realises this. I am excited to be a part of its future.”
