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.

«After a long search, we found a bright, open and friendly place for our daughter in the Kita Familycare Petersgraben. Clara felt very comfortable at the Schildkrötlis from the very first day and has been looking forward to daycare every morning ever since. The small group is like a second home from which the daily journey of exploration starts. The four caregivers make sure that she feels equally taken care of and encouraged. The Schildkrötli team patiently reads one book after another with Clara, has shown her the autumn fair and taught her how to brush her teeth - and all with a lot of joy and experience. We are very grateful for the loving and individual support.»
