DESCRIPTION, RESPONSIBILITIES, & DUTIES

English for Fun is currently recruiting for experienced Early Childhood educators to teach in our Reggio Emilia inspired American Early Childhood Center. Our center is accredited with NECPA (National Association for the Education of Young Children).

Candidates should have a passion for education and a desire to learn. We work closely with families to help with their child’s development. We are looking for educators who are interested in applying research and experience in the classroom to make the education we offer the best in our field. This opportunity is unique because we are also working with children who are not native speakers and therefore require an additional level of learning support – a refreshing challenge for any teacher.

We offer opportunities for professional growth and a stable career path

QUALIFICATIONS/REQUIREMENTS

It is essential to have native-speaker proficiency in English and hold a bachelor’s degree or higher (masters preferred) in Early Childhood Education, Child Development,  Elementary Education, Psychology or related studies. Candidates must also have a minimum of two years experience teaching children. International teaching experience is also advantageous, and experience in Reggio Emilia or Montessori methodologies.

SALARY & BENEFITS

We offer full-time legal contracts (including paid vacation) and highly competitive salaries for our teachers. We also support our teachers in their professional development and provide an exceptional, modern working environment.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Interested candidates should send their resume, cover letter and two letters of recommendation to jobs@englishforfun.es.
