10,000-15,000 Yuan monthly for 5 day 8-5 job where your academic hours are in the clouds of the kiddy games is NOT "lucrative" at all. A FT that teaches early learners may have to prepare a bit more than in any other school, since S/he needs to communicate with the early learners that have basically no knowledge of the language. All the planning, flash cards and verbal and non verbal instructions need to be well outlined ahead of time; or, kids will walk all over the teacher literally. Anyhow, neither the "loads of money" nor terms and conditions are attractive for there are other at least equally paid teaching opportunities that do not require such an extreme weekly schedule.

Many early learners are introduced to a lot of Chinese characters as well as some English words that are matched with Mandarin directly, and they have to recite whatever they have learnt to convince parents the kindergarten is good. Moreover, they have to sing and dance to show how happy they are there too. What may be sad is that when kids aren't willing to cooperate with local teachers, they are disciplined and even shamed in front of peers. This may be how those little schools are getting in trouble.

All in all, the educational concepts of local kindergartens are supposed to be well connected to the following primary schools' curriculum where the ill prepared materials await. So, the FTs' "clowning" to motivate and local teachers' pressure to have all the children ready in order to demonstrate that the little school's tuition fees are well justified. The obedience, uniformity and falsehood about the education are trademarks of the PRC.
