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 that 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 a 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.
Teaching English in Shenzhen:
Shenzhen is located in the southern portion of the Guangdong Province, on the eastern shore of the Pearl River Delta. Neighboring the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong (located just south of Shenzhen), Shenzhen’s location gives it a geographical advantage for economic development. In 1980, the first Special Economic Zone of China was built in Shenzhen. From then on, Shenzhen becomes a highlighted city of China, one known for its rapid economic growth.
Shenzhen is considered one of the richest cities in the country which offers foreigners a great insight into contemporary China. From a small fishing village 30 years ago, Shenzhen has turned into a city filled with dynamic energy and on its way to becoming a world-class metropolis. Shenzhen is also known for its famous architecture, bars, restaurants, art scenes, and shopping areas.
