We are committed to our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare and wellbeing of children and young people in our care and those who work in our school. Through our work, we aim to ensure a safe learning and working environment for students, staff, parents and visitors alike. We take our responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection very seriously. Where there are safeguarding concerns, staff communicate this to the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). It is our aim to ensure that each student feels that they have a trusted adult that they can communicate to their concerns or worries.

Staff receive regular training and updates on their professional responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection. All teaching and classroom support staff hold a basic first aid qualification. A clear reporting system for concerns is in place and understood by all. All activities are risk assessed, and health and safety is always our priority.

We welcome parents, families, and visitors to our school. However, access to the school site is closely monitored and doors are locked during class time. Our signing-in system and color-coded lanyard system ensure that we can easily identify adults on site. All adults who work with our students, including visiting professionals, are appropriately checked and/or supervised. This also supports our emergency evacuation processes which are in place.

Our recruitment procedures follow 'Safer Recruitment' guidelines. Our recruitment ensures that we have the best team of professionals working at Woodland Pre-School. All staff must undertake Avaanz background checks for all countries that they have resided in. This is supported by detailed resumes, reference checks and a robust interview process.


Woodland seeks to provide the highest quality international pre-school education in Hong Kong. To achieve this, we need people of the very highest calibre.

In return, our teaching positions offer generous salaries, excellent benefits and a happy work environment. We're always interested in receiving resumes from committed individuals with relevant experience working as a kindergarten teacher in Hong Kong or Asia. Even if we don't have the ideal position for you right now, we'll carefully review your application and keep it on file. If the right vacancy comes up later, we'll contact you immediately for an interview."
