Overview

Are you someone that loves to be around kids? So much so that you have been teaching them for several years already?

Along the way, you realised that there is a flaw with the traditional education system and want to find a way to help students go further. But at the same time, you wished that you could go higher and gain recognition for all the hard work that you have done.

If you’re really determined to make a change to a child’s life and create a difference to someone’s life, then join Discovery Kidz Preschool as a Principal for pre-school students.

The school utilizes the Montessori Method which was developed by an Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori over 100 years ago, who found out that traditional methods are flawed. So she developed a system where children are able to show their full potential called the Motessori Method, and results show that children who go through this method score significantly higher than children who go through the traditional method.

If you hated learning as a kid, then most likely you were exposed to the traditional method of teaching. But, if you don’t want other children to go through the same pain as you did, then now’s the time to do something about it!

Who knows, maybe along the way, you’ll discover something about yourself. There’s a reason why the school is called Discovery Kidz Preschool after all ;)
