tinyHappy Garden is a small, home-based nursery school inspired by the Montessori and Reggio-Emilia methods. Recently opened in 2014, we have been growing steadily ever since!
We follow a natural, seasonal schedule and do many creative arts and activities with the children. We enjoy music and dancing, so if you can play an instrument, that would be something the children would love!
To start, we require help extremely part-time to begin with, and increasing to a full-time position in the near future as student enrollments increase. Therefore, we are offering a furnished room in the school with meals in exchange for helping maximum 4 hours per day.
Besides looking after very young children, daily duties include:
•communicating with parents about the progress of their children,
•taking photos to document the childrens' achievements,
•keeping the premises tidy,
•planning and preparing creative projects and activities,
•attending all school events and outings, and
•assisting in various ways to help the school grow and maintain a positive reputation in the community
We hope to find an individual who is:
•honest, caring and respectful,
•dependable and punctual,
•presentable and modest in attire/appearance
•healthy and active
If interested, please email your resume with photo and cover letter directly to the program director, Sybrina Wada.
