ABOUT US

At Children’s Tales, our mission is ‘to foster the whole child’ and our motto is ‘we love children wholeheartedly.’

We believe that children are like seeds. Under the right conditions, their inner strengths will blossom and lead them to grow, explore, and thrive in their own way. They are naturally rich in imagination and eager for knowledge. We foster our children with care by creating meaningful experiences and friendly environments, in which their inner strengths can be awakened and inspired. Throughout this process, the developmental needs of children are met and the nature of children is respected. As a result, our students will grow up as competent, confident, and sociable individuals with broad horizons.

Located in the capital of the world’s second-largest economy, Children’s Tales has eight branches in Beijing and one in Chengdu. Collectively we serve over 1000 students and employ over 400 education professionals. Our kindergartens offer a beautiful environment for our students and a professional environment for our teachers. 

We believe that fostering a talented and diverse community is crucial to the growth and development of our students and staffs. As a result, we work hard to maintain a supportive and embracing work environment. We believe firmly in the talents that we’ve chosen and we care about the career development of our staffs. Our teachers are free to develop their own lesson plans and contribute to the design of the curriculum. We encourage our teachers to discover and practice their own unique style of teaching as well as sharing their experiences with others. Teachers interested in management and administration will have access to those positions within the company later in their career.

All in all, the children at Children’s Tales remain our number one priority. We place great emphasis on the education and development of our children. Therefore, it's important for us to have teachers or aspiring teachers who want to offer the best of themselves and grow with the students. We are not dictators in our classrooms, we are invited into the children’s world. Therefore, our job as educators is to enrich their world as much as possible and give them the necessary support for them to develop into complete and happy people. This attitude is fundamental to the work that we do at Children’s Tales.

 

WHAT YOU'LL DO

When you join children’s Tales, you are joining an environment that will challenge you and invest in your professional development. Your responsibilities include, but are not limited to, teaching, engaging with students, working as a team with your Teaching Assistants, lesson planning, and cultivating relationships with parents. You will have the freedom to discover and practice your own style of teaching and leading.
