Lead Teachers Needed for International Kindergarten in Beijing

Position Summary:

Children’s Tales International Kindergarten is currently looking for English speakers to fill teaching positions in China. There are multiple openings for each position. Our students are between the ages of 2 and 6. Basic annual salary ranges from 19,000 GBP to 54,000 GBP based on experience and qualifications. We are recruiting all year round due to expansion.

About us:

Located in the capital of the world’s second-largest economy, Children’s Tales has nine branches in Beijing and one in Cheng Du and is still growing! Our kindergartens offer a beautiful environment for the kids and a professional environment for the teachers. We currently employ over fifty ESL teachers at our modern and spacious locations. Our staffs are made up of both Chinese and foreign teachers. Our mission is to give our students the experiences they need to become competent and confident Individuals. We care about the kids and want our staff to do the same. We don't only teach English, we teach values too and we always work as a team. We like creative people, friendly people, and people who want to have fun.

Our foreign teachers are the leaders of the class and Chinese teachers are there to support them. There are plenty of opportunities for growth within the company. We give aspiring teachers the opportunity to develop their own lesson plans and contribute to the design of the curriculum. No two lessons are the same here at Children’s Tales. Teachers interested in management can go for our coordination and management positions later on in their career. The possibilities are endless.

All in all, the children at Children’s Place remain our number one priority. So, it's important for us to have teachers or aspiring teachers that want to offer the best of themselves and grow with the kids. We are not dictators in our classrooms, we are invited into the kid’s world and it's our job to enrich it as much as possible. That's the kind of environment we work in.
