Global Step Academy International School is looking for experienced and creative preschool/kindergarten teachers to work with children ages 2-6 in an international environment. Both homeroom teacher and assistant teacher positions are available in different areas (mainly in Tokyo).
Daily responsibilities include lesson planning and active participation in all student activities and school events. Teachers must have genuine interest in working and communicating with children of different nationalities, mother tongues and backgrounds.
Global Step Academy International School provides high-quality education to children ages 2 to 6 in a relaxed, homelike atmosphere at over ten locations in the Kanto area (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba). The school curriculum is based on the International Early Years Curriculum, but we are also focused on the teaching of sports (physical education, gymnastics, soccer), dance (hip-hop, jazz, ballet) and music. All non academic subjects are taught by specialist teachers. Lessons are taught in English, as about half of our students are mother tongue speakers.
