If you want to teach children, why don't you get a qualifiaction; B.Ed or a degree and then a post-grad teaching certificate?
The quality of education a child receives in compulsory schooling determines its future. Isn't a teaching qualification a requirement in schools in Australia, and if so, why should Dubai or anywhere else be less stringent?

The HCT and UAE University have programs, all the way up to the BA level, preparing young nationals for teaching children. It's called TEYL: teaching ENglish to Young Learners. It is taken quite seriously. Also, there are plenty of highly qualified people in Dubai teaching children.
