Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

So you like children and their energy? A job that is somewhat demanding but incredibly heartwarming, a job in kindergarten will ensure you have a smile on your face, well rested nights and loads of fun activites.

This program requires some unique characters who have an outgoing personality with a willingness to sing, dance and have fun with the kids! Children learn best when learning through creativity, song & dance, so in order for kids to flourish you’ll need to encourage this creativity as well as encouraging independence!

Our kindergarten teachers work with children aged between two and six, planning and carrying out activities in line with our Learning Criteria. This involves developing lesson plans that inspire and motivate children. All subjects are taught in English and we like to make our lessons really fun and creative. Each class has up to 25 students.

At kindergarten, our focus is on promoting the optimal development of our students in every way. It is our goal to instill a positive attitude to learning and provide a safe, secure environment in which to learn. We also build and maintain good relationships with parents and guardians to further support our students. In your classroom, you’ll have a thai teacher to assist you during your lessons and taking care of the children.

Our working environment in Kindergarten is very close knit. You work closely with the others in your level group, so being a team player is vital in this department.
