Laurus International School of Science requires enthusiastic and experienced individuals for the position of Preschool/ Kindergarten Nursery Teacher, working with young learners aged from 1.5 - 6 yrs old and assisting the homeroom teacher in the classroom. Candidates must be English speakers and should have experience working with young learners in a school setting. Preference will be given to teachers currently in Japan. Japanese language ability is not a requirement.
Laurus International School of Science is the first and only STEM school in Japan. We embrace the latest technology and teaching methodologies to prepare the children of today for the world of tomorrow, and all the promise that holds. With a strong focus on science at all levels, we strive to develop each child’s inquisitive mind. Children are introduced to inquiry-based learning from an early age to foster their natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge. We promote project-based learning through a wide range of hands-on science experiments, perhaps working in one of our science labs or learning to use the latest technology such as programmable robots and 3D printers.
With an eye to the future, Laurus International School of Science also has a strong focus on developing traditional core competencies in each student. Our hugely successful literacy and numeracy programme forms a cornerstone of our students’ learning at all levels.
Our programme includes a wide range of exciting events throughout the year that are fulfilling for students and teaching staff alike.
We are looking for innovative and dedicated Nursery Teachers that would like to work, play, and learn with children. Our programmes are designed for teachers that can use English as the medium to teach our students all about themselves and the amazing world around them. We offer our students a multicultural learning environment and a full immersion English language programme.
Do you have experience working with children? Maybe you have studied early childhood development or teaching. Whatever the case, if you are dedicated to guiding the next generation and you are driven to improve yourself as a forward-thinking teaching professional we can offer excellent opportunities to you.
As a Nursery Teacher you will be working within a dynamic team, providing essential cover and assistance to the homeroom teacher in the classroom. Our Nursery Teachers help establish and maintain a safe learning environment that promotes curiosity, growth, and joy for our young learners. Together, the teaching staff in the classroom educate a class of international and internationally minded students in Tokyo.
We teach a comprehensive curriculum tailored to lead into our Cambridge registered Primary School. There are also opportunities to work with students of all ages and abilities in our after-school classes.
We offer professional development opportunities and the chance to work and collaborate with like-minded teachers on a daily basis. Ongoing support is provided by our team to ensure our students and teaching staff are able to reach their full potential. Laurus International School of Science is growing rapidly with new schools opening frequently and exciting educational programmes constantly being developed and implemented. Opportunities are available to become involved in such projects and we offer the potential for career advancement for successful teachers.
Join us and our future innovators as we seek to change the world for the better!
