A recently opened UK curriculum school in the heart of Abu Dhabi is seeking a qualified and experienced EYFS teacher to join the team as soon as possible.
Reports to: Head of Department, FS2
The School provides a new and exciting opportunity for parents in Al Ain. The new British Curriculum school offers an excellent foundation for learning that develops pupils to become independent, well grounded, confident and ready to face the challenges ahead.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) prepares for the children’s future education through the school. The timetable offers a balance of structured play and small group
activities. The children are assigned a Key teacher who is responsible for planning and teaching the children individually. Each child has a Learning Journey which starts when they enter the Preschool and follows their progress all the way through to the end of the Reception year.
The curriculum provides a broad and balanced education for a class of children, within a secure, stimulating environment in which each individual can achieve their full potential, through the acquisition of knowledge, through social interaction, physical and moral development and decision-making.
