About our kindergarten

Our children receive a minimum of three hours a day of English instruction, all of this done in a natural English environment. Each teacher is responsible for his/her own class. There are a minimum of two Chinese aids and one cleaning lady per classroom to assist you. Working at our school means a commitment to the children in your class and the ability to form appropriate emotional bonds with them, so you MUST love children to take on this work. Our teaching philosophy allows for creativity, flexibility, new concepts and most importantly a teachers’ individual contribution to the lesson. Teachers receive a basic outline bi-monthly which offers helpful teaching points, game ideas, art projects, math and science. Foreign teachers regularly swap ideas, brainstorm and just help each other out. 
Contracts are for one year minimum and due to new visa regulations must be arranged abroad. Our school is licensed and will provide legitimate working FOREIGN EXPERT VISA for your living and working here. Please note we are one of ONLY a schools OFFICIALLY in Chengdu allowed to provide FOREIGN EXPERT VISAS.

Chengdu (the capital of Sichuan) is a smallish city of about 11 million people in southwest China. The cost of living here is significantly lower than other cities in China. Sichuan people are warm hearted, friendlier, down to earth, and less scheming than those in other big cities. The feel of Chengdu is modern while still retaining a lot of the traditional culture. Additionally, you will find plenty of bars, clubs, good restaurants, health clubs, and entertainment. Sichuan Province itself is famous for some of China’s most scenic places, panda resort and most delicious food. It is the gateway to Tibet and has its own domestic and international airport for easy access to travel. Transportation is very reliable with plenty of taxis, new metro-subway link and buses.
