Team At Sorsfort

Teachers at SIS are team of fully dedicated & professional team. All have the special qualities that distinguish a good teacher- patience and understanding. They are dynamic, relaxed and enthusiastic with the ability to create a friendly atmosphere in which the child can express himself and learn. They encourage the development of each child, by providing security and warmth, emphasizing self discipline more than authority and encouragement rather than punishment.

Teachers at SIS are carefully chosen having aptitude and experience to teach the young children. Never satisfied with the tried and tested, they delight in creating more effective ways to explore and share knowledge thus breathing life into their teaching, thereby, enabling our children to go beyond rote learning. Our teachers are here because they love teaching, they love kids and they love SIS resulting in a dynamic, challenging, interesting and excitement filled atmosphere.

Watch Me Grow Video Systems

SIS has added video monitoring cameras in each classroom. The video feed can be viewed from monitors located in the Admin Head’s offices. The major purposes of the system are to ease anxiety that can surround transition times, to provide comfort and assurance for parents, and to allow administrators to monitor and assist teachers by immediately responding to the needs of classrooms and individual children.
