Early Years Classroom Teacher

ECLC is a premier English language early childhood program for children aged 2 to 6 years and has been serving the Seoul community since 1969. At ECLC children are the heart and center of our program, which is why we operate as a not-for-profit. We endeavor to provide all students with a fun, engaging and holistic learning environment where they feel safe, respected and loved. We hope to employ teachers who embody the same values.

At ECLC, we recognize the contribution of our teachers to the development of our students and reward their commitment with a competitive salary. Maybe more importantly, we offer and request a work atmosphere characterized by mutual respect, the willingness to take responsibility and grow professionally as well as -of course- the joy of teaching.

Passionate teachers who identify with our play-based and child-centered approach to learning and meet the requirements listed below are invited to submit their application documents for a potential first round interview.
