The demand for English language education in China has been increasing year after year and with the country's ongoing rapid economic development this demand is expected to only increase in the future. As Chinese parents are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of their children being taught English from an early age onward -- and willing to pay for the competitive advantage -- the demand for skilled and experienced ECE teachers is increasing.
Disney English Schools are a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Disney Corporation, and it employs unique methods to teach English to children in the age group of 2 -- 10 years old. As a brand owned by Disney the teaching methods leverage all the characters, songs, animations, stories and other Disney materials to provide a highly engaging learning experience for young children.
The Disney English Learning Centres are located in Bejing, Shanghai and several other major cities. Teachers will work with a fully designed and provided curriculum in a professional and well structured environment. The compensation package is competitive and comprehensive, including salaries, medical benefits, travel compensation, performance bonuses, vacation days and sick days. The teaching methods employed by Disney require frequent movement -- standing, reaching, playing with the children and singing.
