We are looking for bright positive people to come join our team of international kindergarten teachers. We are a relatively new school and are looking to expand, so chances for advancement and longer term contracts are possible for those looking to live long term in Japan.
At our school, you have a chance to teach kids from many different countries (mainly Japanese) full time and guide them through their first years of life.
It is important to note that we are not an eikaiwa school. The selected teachers will have their own full time class and be with them all day, teaching and looking after them. We teach in English and Japanese and fully immerse the kids in both languages (native speakers preferred).
Having taught at a kindergarten before is a big advantage as it is a very different environment than elementary age and up. Having some experience controlling your own class is also a help.

Staying positive and creating a fun and happy place for the students to learn is crucial.
You will be in control of a class from ages 1-6 years old.
We will also consider people that don’t have experience but are willing to give it their all. When you start you will have help and on the job training teaching in your class, with the full help of the rest of the team.
Looking after young children is a very rewarding experience and there can be a lot of joy from watching them learn and grow. It is also a very physically demanding job that requires a lot of energy and a good-natured temperament.

Someone with a drive and passion for teaching would be great as teaching is not for everyone. We are looking to create a great future for the kids and you will be a big part of that.
If you are assigned to be a main teacher, you will have freedom to teach the class how you want and you will be able to create your own lesson. (We offer great experience and chance to grow as a person and enhance your teaching skills.
