Management Team | Phorms München

    Our work relies on qualified, highly motivated and experienced teaching staff. We employ German and English native speakers with varying educational biographies and experiences, especially where bilingual learning is concerned.

    They all share excellent, in-depth training and enthusiasm for their profession and for working with children. All our teachers are familiar with the Phorms concept and regularly attend both internal and external professional development. This enables us to keep our educational approach at a consistently high level.
