At Ivy Kindertens, we believe that it is of critical importance to not only develop a child's academic ability to also develop each child's character and personality. We work hard to make sure that each child is given the platform to learn, grow and be happy in their lives and learning and to interact fully in the world around them. Finding the right educators is key to this process and we want you to join us at Ivy Kindergartens to use your passion, energy and love of children to help nurture each child to fulfill their wonderful potential and to explore their indivuality.
About Ivy Kindergartens
We began life in 2003, and have seen over 10,000 children grow and develop with us in that time. We encourage children to be inquisitive, to ask questions about what they see around them and be caring and outgoing children. We do this through play, songs, craft activities, projects and thoughtful communication between student and teacher and with each other. At Ivy Kindergartens, you'll be immersed in a world of learning, fun and child development. There is no better place to teach children in China than at Ivy.
The curriculum at Ivy Kindergartens in China is exceptionally well thought-through and draws from multiple intelligence methodologies where inquiry-based learning takes place throughout the duration of each school day. Teachers at Ivy are encouraged to work with our curriculum and and to develop it further with their own creativity and activities they find online and through their own experiences. The end product is bright, conscientious and caring young minds and hearts.
The Working Week at Ivy
As with nearly all kindergartens in China, Ivy Kindergartens have children from 9am until home time at 5pm in the evening, Monday through to Friday. There is no need to be in on the weekends and you'll have every weekend as your usual time off throughout the week.
Kindergarten teachers at Ivy teach two hours in the morning, in what we call 'Circle Teaching'. After lunch, you'll teach the children for a further one hour in more activity-based activities. The rest of the time, you'll be developing teaching material, researching awesome activities and resources online using Pinterest, Google, Instagram, and other good teaching websites for young children. Classes cater for children aged 2-6 years of age. Additionally, you'll be put on two professional development courses, one accredited by Harvard University, during your down-time at Ivy. You'll be very well supported and will certainly grow as a kindergarten teacher at Ivy Schools. We invest in you and it's a great place to work and teach. All of our classes at Ivy Kindergarten are pure English environemnts.
