About us:
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.

Located in the capital of the world’s second-largest economy, Children’s Tales has nine branches in Beijing and one in Cheng Du. Our kindergartens 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.

We believe that attracting and fostering a talented and diverse workforce is crucial to our success, and more importantly, to the success of our students. As a result, we believe firmly in the talents that we’ve chosen. Our foreign teachers are the leaders of the class and Chinese teachers are there to support them. We care about the career development of our staffs, so there are plenty of opportunities for growth within the company. We give aspiring teachers the opportunity 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. No two lessons are the same at Children’s Tales. Teachers interested in management and administration will have access to those positions within the company later in their career. The possibilities are endless.

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's the kind of environment we work in. If you are interested in being a part of our mission, please check out the details below and at our career site: ctgogo.careers.eteach.com
