Susann Borchert, Deputy Head of Nursery
The childhood educator was born in the region of Mecklenburg and has been with the PhorMinis since they were set up in 2012. Until July 2019, she worked as a pedagogical assistant in the elementary and nursery groups. Since August 2019 she has been a member of the leadership team alongside Ms Brand.
Qualified, motivated, experienced staff members are key to the success of our work. We employ a mix of native German and English staff from a variety of educational backgrounds with various experiences. Experience in bilingual education is paramount for us to ensure we are recognized as leading bilingual teachers.
Our female and male educators are specialised in English and also in specific subjects according to the recommendations for education in Hamburg.
These subjects are spread out throughout the week and the children are divided into fixed groups to study them. Each group of children has two educators. Upon entering day care, each child is allocated to one of the educators, who will continue to mentor the child as long as he or she is in day care.
All new staff members undergo training when they start working with us, to familiarise them with the Phorms concept and to ensure that our work in education continues to meet the same high standards. In addition, our team of educators regularly attend internal and external professional development courses, training and supervision sessions.
