Cambridge Red Oak bilingual Kindergarten founded in 2001 and based in Fujian, China.
The Cambridge Red Oak Kindergartens seek teachers of children for our modern and well-equipped branch schools in Xiamen City and around Fujian Province. Come visit beautiful southern coastal China and experience the history, culture, and language, while gaining valuable experience in teaching some bright and beautiful children using our version of a ‘project’ teaching approach. The schools are regionally renowned, registered with and regularly inspected by the department of education, and have been licensed for business since 2001.
In our All English Classes, teachers spend the day with their teaching team members and their children speaking English as they practice a theme-and-projects process approach. The children are a joy and the work is profoundly rewarding. Teachers are trained, and always supported by their teaching team which meets regularly.
Meals are provided at breakfast and lunch-time. Teachers come in with the children in the morning and are free when the children leave the school at approximately five in the afternoon. There is a noon naptime break of over two hours. Evenings and weekends are free time.
We offer a certificate of accomplishment in our TPP approach at the end of a minimum two-year term, (although the children spend three years in the program, and having one teacher for all three years is ideal).
The schools provide all necessary support to teachers with regard to life in China and the ability to speak Chinese is not required. We look forward to having the opportunity to address your questions and concerns! This need of kindergarten teachers in ongoing and growing. Please contact me at any time with questions. I will be happy to provide full and ample detail.
Teachers will first acquire a work permit from the Bureau of Foreign Experts here in Xiamen City. This is used along with a one-year work contract with our school to get the work visa, called the ‘z’ visa. We reimburse you for the cost of the visa. Details of this process can also be seen on the website of the Chinese Office of Consular Affairs in your region.
Xiamen is a beautiful and modern city with little winter to speak of. It has everything from a brand new subway system to beautiful beaches, and more college campuses than possibly any other city on earth. The cost of living in our region is lower, and it is safe to walk the streets anywhere and at any time. Teachers are respected and well treated. It is our hope that you will join us and stay on renewing your work contract with us year after year.
