Children First Association is a non-profit organisation providing childcare and education to high standards for bilingual and international children in and around Zurich. Our pre-school curriculum is based on the UK Early Years and Montessori principles, with child observation at the core of our assessment process.

Children First has vacancies for: a qualified English-speaking nursery nurse (starting June part-time or August 2018 full-time, babies and toddlers), a Kleinkinderzieherin (after-school care ages 2 plus), and a graduate training as a toddler guide or an early years teacher from August 2018 in Zurich / January 2019 in a new location, ages 3 to 6. Our Zurich schoolhouse is located near Stadelhofen in a beautiful residential area, with our own garden and pre-school playground, and excellent transport links.

The interview process includes telephone screening, a first interview, supporting or leading a group activity, and writing a young child observation which will need to be submitted in advance of the final interview. Qualified early years practitioners should submit their full portfolio.
