Located in the capital of the world’s second-largest economy, Children’s Tales has nine campuses in Beijing and one in Cheng Du. Our campuses offer a beautiful environment for our students and a professional environment for our teachers. We currently employ over fifty foreign teachers at our modern and spacious locations. Our staffs are made up of both Chinese and foreign teachers. We care deeply about our children and want our staffs to do the same.
From puzzles to cookware, our resources enable students to interact creatively with their teacher and with one another. As teachers, you can use our resources to easily interact with our children and be part of their world. We also provide children books and a cosy corner for story time. Our classrooms become children's kingdom, where their imagination is fueled by a variety of stimulating activities and stories.
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 that want to offer the best of themselves and grow with our students. We are not dictators in our classrooms, we are invited into our 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 become the persons that they are meant to be. That is the kind of environment we work in and that is what we hold dear.
At Children’s tales, our mission is to foster the whole child.
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 children will grow up as competent, confident, and sociable individuals who are broad in horizons.
