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.

«When we gave our oldest son Matteo to the daycare center, it was the first time for him and us. We met a very experienced team at the Kita Familycare Petersgraben, which took care of our child with interest and open-mindedness and was able to show us how growing into the Kita group made important developments possible for our son. In this way, Matteo had the opportunity to stand up for himself among other children, to learn from others, to connect, to negotiate, to look for compromises and to develop strategies in dealing with each other. In the Kita Familycare Petersgraben we found the development of our son accompanied sensitively and understandingly. We noticed again and again how the caregivers kept an eye on all interactions of the children and how they intervened calmly or waited carefully. We are very happy that we found this daycare center for Matteo and later his two siblings. We distribute the "maximum score". Over the years we have observed how our children have been able to make important steps in their interaction with others and it is nice to know that they can all enter kindergarten well prepared.»
