Adjustment for New Kids

Infants, Toddlers and Preschool

The adjustment is of uttermost importance for the child, the parents and the staff. After a first meeting where the child, the parents and the staff get to know each other, the parents may bring the child for shortened periods of time a few days during the first two weeks until the child is familiar with the new situation.

Kindergarten and Primary School

Parents and future students have the opportunity of visiting their new class room prior to the summer break to experience the learning environment and meet the teachers before their first day of school.

We also take into account newcomers to Basel and how difficult it can be to make an informed decision on a choice of school within a short time period and with no prior knowledge of the local system. Therefore, we also offer the option of doing free trial days in the Kindergarten and Primary school, to put parents and children at ease before having to sign a contract.
