Why Choose BKA?

What makes us great

Bilingual Education

As a bilingual school parents can offer their kids an environment where their kids will enjoy learning in two languages. This opens up not only increased social opportunities for children, but also extensive studies have shown that a bilingual education strengthens the cognitive abilities of students.

Curriculum

We offer the best international curriculum in the world. As a candidate school for the International Baccalaureatte (IB), we offer the IB Primary Years Program for children aged 3-12 years old. Currently we are the only bilingual school in the city of Basel that offers the IB PYP program.

Family environment

We are a family centric school that has chosen the approach of offering an intimate school environment. In our school your child will not feel like they are only another 1 out of 1000 as they struggle to find their identity in a mass of children. We are a very close and welcoming community of International and local families. We are the type of school where “everyone knows everyone’s name” Our entire staff takes a very personal approach to each child and family that we serve.

Year-round Childcare

Our program was designed to provide the best possible childcare coverage to provide flexibility for families. We offer an extensive package of full year coverage. For our infants (+3 months), toddlers (+18 months-3 years) and preschool (+3-4 years) we are an all-inclusive day school that provides 7 am – 7 pm coverage which includes holiday coverage.

For our kindergarten (+4 years) and primary school (6-12 years) we offer after school care and holiday coverage that provides families with the same 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. coverage.  Therefore, there is no need to take your kids to any external after school programs or holiday camps. They can stay in their comfortable and known environment, while receiving the care from internal teachers that they know, as learn and play with their friends.

Diversity

We are very proud that our school is a perfect example of diversity. By being an international bilingual school, we feel privileged that both our staff and the families that we serve represent the full spectrum of diversity. At the BKA we value the uniqueness of the individual and firmly believe that our diversity makes us a stronger community.d.
