Bloom World Academy, located in the centre of Dubai in a state-of-the-art new building/campus, is seeking to appoint a Nursery Teacher for our brand new bespoke nursery to start in August 2023.
Bloom World Academy was launched in August 2022 and educates children from 18 months to 18 years. The school has been hugely successful, so far, in challenging convention and doing things differently in Dubai for the benefit of learners, families and teachers.
After a very successful first year of operation, we are looking to expand our offering next academic year to a small nursery that will sit a part of our Primo (early years) section. We are initially opening two groups in our nursery and are now looking for staff for this.
BWA is a school which puts family-life first – we encourage parents to be in school, even work from school in our community café, attend regular workshops and to join our weekly, celebratory community forum. The expansion to a nursery as a... part of this school is an expansion of our family first offering to our community. Priority placement in our nursery would be offered to our current families.
Every aspect of learning and teaching at Bloom World Academy has been considered - how we do it, why we do it and the impact it is having. This has directly led to many firsts for the UAE. BWA is the first school in UAE to start at 9am; the first school where each student and their family can choose their own timetable (learning pathways), and a school where each student has a Learning Achievement Passport (LAP) – where the performance and progress is shared with the student and family several times a year.
Our approach has been successful, we are exceeding all expectations, and therefore wish and need to appoint a notable number of creative and dedicated teachers, expert practitioners – who really want to apply their skills in a forward-thinking, creative school where the craft of teaching is highly valued.
Nursery Teacher - the Position
Bloom World Academy is seeking creative and expert practitioners for the role of Nursery Teacher for the Primo (nursery) section of our school.
As an Early Years practitioner, you must clearly commit to holistically developing each child. Our nursery uses a curiosity-inspired approach and a firm focus on the EYFS prime areas. While we focus on academic achievement for every child, we also focus on the social, emotional, and physical development of all our students to ensure a successful start to more formal schooling once our youngest students transition from nursery to Pre-KG.
We are looking for experienced teachers with strong knowledge of the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and a curiosity-inspired approach that creates environments and learning experiences where our children can thrive, think for themselves, and direct their learning. You will need to design play opportunities around children's interests, providing various play experiences that support the sound development of cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.
As a facilitator, you will ensure resources and interactions with adults are meaningful. Alongside learning through play, you will plan for a balance of adult-facilitated and child-initiated activities. You will be able to teach students of all abilities and demonstrate a proven track record of securing outstanding student outcomes.
It is highly desirable that you have experience with the curiosity approach or Montessori training. As a practitioner, you should have knowledge and expertise in planning rich, engaging, and challenging learning experiences for your students, have a strong understanding of assessment and its use in the classroom, and most importantly have a passion for stretching students to achieve their potential and beyond.
The BWA Community
BWA teachers are part of a community which is cohesive, spirited and sociable. BWA teachers enjoy genuine friendships with their colleagues, positive relationships with school leaders, who care for their well-being, and are a team in the true sense. BWA teachers are flexible, problem solvers and are not fazed by the more mundane challenges of developing a new school. At BWA teachers are expected to be good-humoured and build positive working relationships with families. All staff are encouraged to be creative and partake/lead community events.
