job description

Head of Early Years Centre
Start Date: January 2021
Location: Zhuhai, China
Region: Far East and South East Asia - Leadanywhere
Curriculum: UK
Experience: 2+ years

School Overview: This early years centre is part of a family of UK curriculum schools that combines over 400 years of educational excellence with a modern approach and first-rate facilities. These schools are diversifying and creating Bilingual education schools aimed at Chinese nationals whilst being supported by, and honouring the school group's well-rounded approach to education, which not only prioritises academic achievement but also helps to bring out the best in each pupil.

The Early Years Centre in Zhuhai provides young children with an excellent and enjoyable start to their educational journey through life. Adopting the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum of England and adding strong local linguistic and cultural dimensions, pupils begin to develop creative thinking and collaboration skills through a progressive curriculum that recognises the individuality of each learner. It is at this stage too, within the pleasant atmosphere of the Centres, that the School Group's Values of Courage, Honour, Humility and Fellowship are introduced, helping to shape character from this very early point in their lives.

Location Overview: Zhuhai is a small city relative to the big players in China but it is a diamond in the rough that borders on Macau and is connected by the world's longest bridge to Hong Kong. Today the city is known for golf resorts, theme parks and islands off the Pearl River Delta. The air quality and the seaside location work to make Zhuhai a highly liveable place. This is a great place to live in a sub-tropical climate with Macau and Hong Kong on your doorstep.
