Our teachers should be professional teachers, people who are genuine about education, people who love to work with children and get great satisfaction working with children. We are looking for teachers who are eager to expand their career in education, people who are looking to grow. Our teachers are loving, caring and genuinely interested in children. They like to interact with children be they their own students or others. Our teachers are not afraid of letting their hair down, getting dirty and hands on with the kids. Our teachers are open to new concepts, to new ideas to new methodologies and are generally open to learning and keen to learn. 

Our teachers are organised, meticulous and perfectionists. They take pride in the work and they understand the need for excellence and they strive for this in everything they do.
