Do you want to gain experience working abroad in an international crèche? Baby Erasmus is an English-speaking crèche located in Badajoz (Spain). Our centre participates in European research projects related to early childhood education and early second language learning. Our 0-6 year olds are bilingual English-Spanish and the only working language they use in our crèche is English. We have a professional and international staff with experience teaching in different countries.
We are looking for an early childhood educator willing to work abroad to cover the maternity leave of one of our teachers from January 8th until the end of June. We think this is a great opportunity for early childhood educators who want to work with bilingual students in an international environment and get to know other European educational curriculums.
An exciting opportunity to manage/lead a team of dedicated Early Childhood Professionals has become available. The service operates three rooms in a newly built premises in Athy town. The service provides full day care and school aged childcare to children aged from one to twelve years of age.
