Day Kindergarten

Familycare Wettsteinplatz day kindergarten: The private kindergarten with individual supervision


The internal day kindergarten Familycare Wettsteinplatz, as well as the Familycare Wettsteinplatz daycare center, is embedded in a beautiful historic house in the area of the Bürgerliches Waisenhaus of the city of Basel, a former Carthusian monastery directly on the Rhine. The facility is state-approved. Permission to run the kindergarten is granted by the Department of Education of the canton of Basel-Stadt; the kindergarten is inspected and assessed annually. The class size is limited to 15 children. The children are taught in small groups, which enables individual support and optimal preparation for school entry. The kindergarten completes the cantonal Curriculum 21 spread over 4 days; Friday is free. Full-day care of the kindergarten children on several or all weekdays (including school holidays) is possible at the Wettsteinplatz daycare center.

At the same location, Familycare Basel runs both the day kindergarten with 15 places and a daycare center with 62 places, which is described separately on our website.
