School Overview: This international school in Shanghai is located over two sites; the first is a small pre-school for 80 children and the second is a pre/primary school for 200 children ranging from 18 months - 6 years old. The school is hiring for both sites with the second site expanding this year to include Primary. It offers state-of-the-art facilities including sensory corridors, a large indoor playground, construction room, art studio, light studio, science studio, library and a kitchen for children. The school environment provides diverse opportunities for children to explore and develop various areas like creativity, critical thinking and imagination, as well as literacy and numeracy.

Location Overview: From the futuristic skyline of Pudong to the traditional pavilions in the sprawling Yu Gardens, China's most westernised city is a thriving metropolis with a close-knit expatriate community.

Located in the Yangtze River delta, the city offers burgeoning culinary and vibrant music scenes. Culturally diverse and full of life, you will never want for things to do.
