job description

Are you an experienced Early Childhood Teacher looking for a new and exciting challenge? Apply now to this amazing opportunity to teach at a lovely Australian kindergarten (preschool age) in the United Arab Emirates!

The centre & philosophy
The centre and school are known for:

  • Collaborative culture
  • Professionalism
  • Strong focus on positive psychology
  • Strong focus on inquiry and child centred approach

With values such as respect, striving for excellence and emphasis on the learning needs of the individual child, this centre and school provide a safe and inspiring learning environment for children up to year 12. What's important for the child is important for the teachers!

The curriculum
The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines are followed, as well as the Reggio Emilia approach. Teachers will have the opportunity to participate in a one week Reggio Emilia Study Group in Italy in November.

As a teacher of 4-5 year olds you make your own choices within the established curriculum for the first term. The rest of the year will consist of projects that you choose with the children, from gardens & plants to means of transport, animals or countries in the world. The year calendar is full of excursions and activities, often together with the children from the primary and secondary school.

The team
You'll work collaboratively in a team of six Early Childhood Teachers from Australia and New Zealand. Although you'll be responsible for your own class and curriculum, you support each other where needed.

The requirements
We are looking for an experienced Early Childhood Teacher that is energetic, positive, flexible and has a passion for learning and striving for excellence - both in teaching the children and develop personally and professionally yourself.

Desirable experience:

  • Experience with the Australian curriculum
  • International experience, either through working or travelling abroad
  • Experience in a school setting

The benefits

  • Tax free salary
  • Free accommodation
    Two bedroom villa on site (or allowance for rent elsewhere)
  • Health care covered
  • Flight to the United Arab Emirates and annual flight home
    Only covered for you, not for your family
  • Free enrolment in kindergarten, primary or secondary school for your children
    Also a nursery available on site, for that a fee applies
  • Annual gratuity
    Comparable to superannuation in Australia
  • Annual leave
    14 weeks of holiday - plenty of time to travel around!
  • 3 year contract with possibility to stay permanently
