with benefits and incentives pro-rated accordingly.

- We have 11 national holidays per year. In addition, teachers may take off a religious holiday
per their beliefs (e.g. Christmas, Hanukkah). Each foreign lead teacher has approximately 10 personal days of leave per year (contract dependent).
- Each year we have two “Golden Weeks” where the entire country is on vacation for 7 consecutive days: one time for National Day on October 1 and a second time for Spring Festival (late-January or early-February). Teachers often request off a week before or after a Golden
Week to allow for a two-week vacation. Other times, teachers may save their personal days to go back to their home country for a longer vacation (e.g. two weeks for Christmas).
- Lead teachers work from Monday to Friday or from Tuesday to Saturday.
- The workday for a lead teacher is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Each day there are 4 hours of
time in the classroom, 3 hours of prep and a one-hour break.
- Lead teachers are paired with a co-teacher who assists during all class sessions. Our co-Teachers are bilingual and assist in maintaining order in the classroom. Each group of students has a caregiver whose primary role is to make sure the children use the bathroom, wash their hands.
- Our students range in age from 2.5 to 5.5 years old.
- Each class consists of up to 18 children. Every class has a lead teacher, a bilingual co- teacher and a caregiver. The student-teacher ratio is never more than 6:1.
