The Job

Our school is now holding interviews for Academic Coordinators for our Montessori inspired school. Established in 2010, our school has expanded rapidly to 4 branches. Our students are aged 2 to 6 year olds and it is our driving belief to provide them with a nurturing environment that respects and challenges young learners to build a better future and community. Maximum class size is 18 students, with two assistants per class, so the student teacher ratio is 6:1.

The Academic Coordinator will deliver a rich education experience and enable the teaching team to do the same. You will ensure the very highest educational standards and help design and develop upon the curriculum to ensure this. Academic coordinators assist in the operation of the company by coordinating teacher training and performing student and teacher observations. Coordinators must be willing to demonstrate flexibility in terms of the scope of this position.

Our role is to offer a loving homelike environment for young learners to develop positive attitudes through classroom activities and leading by example. We stimulate prize sharing, acceptance and respect for others in every student to help develop their relationship skills while valuing each of their individuality and unique gifts at the same time. We instigate discipline, respect for others and a sense of responsibility to our students and encourage them to be at their best while being good to others at the same time.

Our English classes are led by a native language teacher, a local teaching assistant and a caregiver to better reach out to every learners needs. We emphasize on games, songs, role plays and the use of physical objects to tap all the senses of a young learner. Our textbook is Playway, developed by Cambridge University in England. We have also developed our own curriculum and hands on activities to tailor the strengths and preferences of each class.
