Working with children can be highly rewarding, and browsing your local classifieds is one way to find nursery jobs in Singapore. Whether you are new to the sector or have years of experience, there are many different nursery jobs available to consider.
Nurseries, also known as pre-schools or reception classes, are usually aimed at three to five-year-olds and have the preparation of children for full-time education as their main goal. Nursery teachers (often working part-time) are responsible for planning and leading educational activities with the primary aim of developing children socially.
Security is a chief concern at many nurseries, and applicants should be able to provide a safe environment for children both physically and emotionally. Important attributes for prospective candidates include enthusiasm, creativity, responsiveness to individual children's needs and an awareness of government guidelines on pre-school curriculum and practices. Often, professional development takes place on the job via various training schemes, but prior experience with children is desirable.
The term 'nanny' is often used interchangeably to refer to a broad range of different duties, and might be as easily applied to a live-in au pair as it is to a self-employed, after-school childminder. More correctly, however, a nanny is employed by a single family on a full-time, live-out basis to care for children.
Nannies are traditionally female, and their role is very much as a surrogate for a mother with other commitments, such as a demanding and time-consuming career. Nanny duties include supervising, bathing and dressing the children, planning and preparing meals, performing general housework related to childcare, educating and disciplining the children and providing them with emotional support.
Typically, experience is more important than qualifications for a nanny role, but a driving licence, first aid training and child care training are all desirable. Because employers will be looking for somebody they can trust with their most valuable assets - their children - references demonstrating a proven track record of satisfied clients are often vital.
Whether you are looking for a formal educational role supervising and teaching a large nursery of children at once or a more intimate long-term commitment to a single family, local classifieds are a good way to find nursery jobs in Singapore. Be sure to present yourself well to employers, and be aware that they will be looking for reliability and trustworthiness above most other qualities.
