Fukinomori Kindergarten (富貴の森保育園)
English Teacher at Fukinomori
Fukinomori is a one year old preschool located in Mie prefecture's beautiful Nabari City, one hour on a scenic train trip from Osaka. Nabari is a very peaceful city surrounded by mountains and trees and gets you away from the hustle and bustle of Osaka for the day. Our Children’s ages range from 0 to 6 years old and the native English teacher works with all ages throughout the day, mainly focusing on the 3 to 6 year olds. The teaching facilities are excellent with fully equipped classrooms and teaching materials, all creating the ideal working environment.
We seek a full-time native English speaking teacher, starting from April 1st to plan and create a fun and educational English curriculum for the children. The lessons will be taught alongside a Japanese teaching partner, so we are looking for teachers who have a strong commitment to working closely with another teacher. The Japanese teachers are extremely helpful and will make the job a lot easier for you the English teacher. Young children form a strong bond with their teacher, so only applicants who can commit to a full year will be considered.
Applicants currently residing in Japan with a valid visa for at least the length of the contract will be given preference. Japanese speaking ability is not a requirement, however, as the sole English speaker in the school I recommend learning some basic Japanese speaking skills to help you communicate with the Japanese teachers. Working at our preschool is a deeply rewarding experience, but it also requires a higher level of maturity and commitment than many other English teaching jobs in Japan. Applicants should be available to visit the preschool before commencing employment and be willing to commit to a full-time one year contract from April.
Applicants should send a cover letter explaining why you are interested in this position, along with a CV, a photo and two references. There will be training from the 7th to the 11th of March
Working days: Monday to Friday (3-5 Days/week negotiable.)
Working hours are from 9:30～18:30 with at least a minimum of 5 hours, part-time hours begin from 12:30 pm through to 6:30pm.
Please write down your preferred hours.
This is a very rewarding job and the right applicant will learn and develop as an English teacher more than you would ever expect. So if you enjoy caring for young children and want more than just standing in front of the classroom then please contact us. Interviews will be conducted in Osaka or Nabari city as soon as possible
