We are working with an American-style preschool who tells us that every day a child arrives at this school, he or she can expect to have the best day ever... then the next day arrives and it will be even better! And they need a few teachers to join the team to help ensure that this stays true.

The children here are surrounded by the smiling faces of people who are passionate about education and the rewards that come from making a difference in the life of a child—and we hope to help by introducing you to their team. Each and every day, their mission truly comes alive within the walls of their schools: Teachers and Nurses Partner with Parents to Promote the Success of Each Child.

This is not just an English learning center. While English is a big part of what you will do, it is more important to focus on the overall development of the children at the school through art, music and movement, and games. Children attending this school make life long friends, feel safe and secure, and discover that learning is fun.
