What Does a Preschool Teacher Do at Shaws

Quite simply, you will be put in charge of play! Your role is to bring our ShawsPlay curriculum combining inquiry-based learning and play-based approaches to life.

As a preschool teacher at Shaws, you will introduce the children to a subject, and help them take the lead in exploring the topic in an engaging and playful way. You will also provide our children with a fun environment to enjoy learning—designing experience-rich hands-on activities that prepare them for formal school and life in general.

PS — Our teachers don’t just teach your little ones to memorize the alphabet, do mathematical worksheets, or tell them to paint by numbers. They teach them all this through play!

Why You Should Work as a Preschool Teacher at Shaws

There isn’t a dull moment at Shaws Preschool. Each day as a preschool teacher is full of fun, fulfilling, and fabulous moments!

As a Shaws Preschool teacher, your creativity will be put to the test. We will guide you on how we create engaging, entertaining, and enriching learning activities that promote social, cognitive, and emotional development in our preschool children.

We care about our teachers as much as we care about the children. Shaws Preschool takes pride in offering professional opportunities for our teachers to develop and grow, to become the best mentors and educators.

Your heart will also swell with pride and passion when the little ones under your charge grow and develop in leaps and bounds. Every Shaws Preschool graduate is confident, resilient, and active, ready to tackle the challenges of primary school education.

“Hello everyone, I’m Cui Laoshi from the Mountbatten campus. In a blink of an eye, I’ve been working with Shaws for more than eight years. I started as an inexperienced teacher, and am now a Lead Chinese Language teacher.  I’m grateful for Shaws for offering me opportunities to grow and allowing me room to try out different fun and engaging ways to teach the children. I’m heartened to know that Shaws takes the Chinese curriculum seriously, letting me stay in a job that I adore tremendously.

In my next chapter with Shaws, I hope to continue my love and passion for the job and, most importantly, challenge myself in my teaching and leadership capability.”

“I’m Charlyn and I am one of the Curriculum Specialists of Shaws Preschool. I am in my 14th year at Shaws. I joined the Mountbatten campus as a teacher before becoming a principal. Presently, I am part of the Shaws Curriculum team, which works with the five campuses.

It goes without saying that I love working at Shaws. The school’s philosophy of “learning is an adventure” is the same as what I believe in: Happy children makes happy learners. Having a diverse group of students and teachers at Shaws is also like working with a global community. In addition to that, Shaws allowed me to develop professionally, from a teacher to a centre leader. Incomparable support was given to me by my colleagues and the management.

So if you’re looking for a place to work and have fun, to help children grow, to hone your skills and progress in your career, Shaws Preschool may be the right place for you.”
