We are searching for a full-time English Kindergarten Teacher to start training from March; The full-time position would start from April 1st.

Michelle International Kindergarten is a kindergarten located in the very peaceful and beautiful city of Takasaki. Gunma prefecture, which Takasaki is a part of, is an extremely safe prefecture in several aspects. It is also a very low-cost prefecture to live in when compared to several others across Japan. Moreover, Tokyo is about 2 hours away by normal train or less than one hour by bullet train. This way you can enjoy the experience of both the city-side and country-side of Japan.

As a teacher at Michelle International Kindergarten, you are not just an assistant teacher – you are the main English teacher of the students.

The kindergarten has a real small-scale feel to it, where you can grow close with your students and enjoy several unique experiences such as an overnight excursion, strawberry picking, and more. We believe this is an environment that will lead to you having a bright future working with kids.
