DAY CARE AT YORK ENGLISH

Teaching at our Daycare centers in Shenzhen is for those who truly adore working with younger children (2-6 years olds, however most are 2-4 year olds). Our Daycare teachers work regular hours (8.30am-5.30pm, Monday-Friday) as opposed to our ESL teachers who work afternoons and evenings, Wednesday-Sunday.Γ‚

This programme is delivered in English wherever possible, giving the students tons of exposure to this new language, and lots of opportunities to practice it. Working with a Chinese co-teacher, you’ll be guiding the children through their first steps in education and giving them crucial skills to prepare them for full time education. We help them understand the world through play and fun, creating learning environments that are caring, supportive and friendly to foster their independence.Γ‚

The role of the daycare teacher requires patience, a friendly and warm personality, and of course a true love of working with young children. We are looking for teachers who have the initiative to shape the role and truly make it their own.

Below is an example timetable of a typical daycare teacher with us here in Shenzhen.
