English Speaking Early Childhood Educator/Assistant (m/f/d) for FRÖBEL centre Flügelnuss in Bonn
Early Childhood Educator/Assistant (m/f/d)
Are you passionate about the English language and different cultures? Children acquire languages intensively in the first years of their lives. Would you like to play your part? If yes there would be an opportunity to do so at our FRÖBEL-Kindergarten Flügelnuss in Bonn. Be a linguistic role model as an English speaking educator at FRÖBEL - a job offer that allows you to playfully give something back of your intercultural experiences and competences.
We are currently looking for a qualified English-speaking early childhood education professional to help implement the FRÖBEL Focus “Bilingual Education” at our FRÖBEL Kindergarten Flügelnuss in Bonn.
English Speaking Early Childhood Educator/Assistant for FRÖBEL centre Flügelnuss in Bonn (m/f/d)
The newly built FRÖBEL-Kindergarten Flügelnuss opened in September 2019. One of its focus areas will be Bilingual Education which gives children the opportunity to get to know the English language early in life. We believe that among other benefits bilingual education can help to get to know other cultures and to develop intercultural skills.
A second focus area at Flügelnuss is Sustainability. Even before the opening, the Flügelnuss team has been working on the subject of sustainability and has already been awarded the “Nachhaltige Kita” (Sustainable Childcare Centre) certificate by the “Wissenschaftsladen Bonn” (Bonn Science Shop). In the long term Flügelnuss aims to integrate the 17 goals of the United Nations into everyday pedagogy. The goals include providing quality education to children, raising awareness for sustainable consumption, ending all forms of poverty, promoting peace and justice, and tackling climate change. The centre’s natural outdoor area and the proximity to nature should help us to reach these goals.
