We are looking for energetic and upbeat teachers to join our team. We are a preschool in Higashiyamato (think the suburbs of western Tokyo), surrounded by parks. We have 60 staff, 5 of whom are non-Japanese nationals working in the school’s English program. We would love to hear from teachers that feel that they have something extra to offer. Music, art-and-craft, IT, dance… use your passions to make the learning environment more fun and engaging.

We have English playtime in the mornings, and extra-curricular classes in the afternoon. This position is perfect for someone who is trying to get away from the Eikaiwa and ALT style of work; a large part of this position is playing and interreacting with the children. We love to have our teachers help supervise outside play-time and ride the school buses to give the children a chance to learn about the teachers and other cultures.
