Kita Familycare St. Johann

Kita Familycare St. Johann: The attractive daycare center in the noble mansion on the Rhine bank

The Familycare St. Johann daycare center is located in a spacious, listed Art Nouveau villa in the spacious St. Johanns-Park, close to the Rhine banks. At the time, the park was specially designed for families with children and offers a large playground, plenty of open space and bathing facilities in summer. The comfortable rooms, optimally equipped to meet the children’s needs, are divided into various play, activity and rest areas. The Familycare St. Johann daycare center was awarded the title "Burzelbaum-Kita" as part of a project for more exercise and healthy nutrition. The Kita Familyare St. Johann was also a participant in the pilot project "Children’s participation in Basel daycare centers" run by the Department of Education of the canton of Basel-Stadt. Like all Familycare Basel daycare centers, The Familycare St. Johann Kita and its entire staff stand for high quality pedagogical values and look after the children according to recognized educational principles.

Virtual tour

«We couldn’t be happier with Kita St. Johann. The personalized approach acknowledges the individual needs, capacities and development of each child. Their transparent communication style builds trust between management, staff and parents. Children are socialized in age-appropriate rituals and milestones in the welcoming atmosphere of an old villa, spending many hours each day outdoors. For these reasons and many more, Kita has become a special place for our family.»
