Kita Familycare Petersgraben

Kita Familycare Petersgraben: The friendly daycare center in the middle of Basel's Old Town

The Familycare Petersgraben daycare center is ideally located in Basel's Old Town, opposite the University Hospital Basel and a two-minute walk from the main building of the University of Basel. The venerable building offers angled, child-friendly rooms in which the children can move around unhindered. A private, protected inner courtyard with a large sandpit, extensive playground equipment and beautiful plants encourages activities in the fresh air; various green areas and playgrounds as well as the banks of the Rhine in the immediate vicinity also invite to linger. The Familycare Petersgraben daycare center was awarded both the "Burzelbaum-Kita" and the "Fourchette verte - Ama terra" label as part of a project for more exercise and healthy nutrition. Like all Familycare Basel daycare centers, the Familycare Petersgraben Kita and its entire staff stand for high quality pedagogical values and look after the children according to recognized educational principles.

Virtual tour


«Milan, our now 20-month-old son is joyfully excited in the morning as soon as we arrive at daycare. At home, he often happily sings songs that are still unknown to us. Sometimes he laughingly mentions the name of his favorite playmate from daycare or individual names of his caregivers. We notice that he really feels at home in the daycare center. We are very grateful for that. We experience the team as very professional and loving.»
