Kita Familycare Wettsteinplatz

Kita Familycare Wettsteinplatz: The Kita in the wonderful former Carthusian monastery close to the Rhine

The Kita Familycare Wettsteinplatz is nestled in the grounds of the Basel City Orphanage, a former Carthusian monastery directly on the Rhine. On several floors, the historic house offers lovingly furnished child-friendly rooms that encourage them to discover, play and move. The magnificent garden directly on the Rhine with its playground and petting zoo fascinates young and old alike. Kita Familycare Wettsteinplatz 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 Wettsteinplatz Kita and its entire staff stand for high quality pedagogical values and look after the children according to recognized educational principles.

At the same location, Familycare Basel also runs a day kindergarten with 15 places, which is described separately.

Virtual tour

«The fact that our children are ready to leave much sooner on the days they are allowed to go to Kita Familycare Wettsteinplatz speaks for itself. We appreciate the versatility and patience of the caregivers and that each child is treated individually.»
