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 the title "Burzelbaum-Kita" 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.

«"Eguetee! (Enjoy your meal!)" David also uses to call at home at the family table. This is just one of many small rituals he has been learning in the Kita Familycare Petersgraben.
Sometimes we really have to convince David that it's "closing time" now and time to come home. And after the holidays he is always looking forward to seeing his “Gspänli” (buddies) again.»
