Little foot daycare in Basel - any thoughts?

Hello

we are relocating to Basel and looking for English speaking/bilingual daycare. I came across Little foot daycare. Has anyone heard about it, is it recommended?

thanks!

I think it's only opening in September, so I'm not sure if you'll be able to get much feedback on it.

Maybe someone knows the staff from their previous work. It's near our house, but we haven't heard anything yet.

I can recommend 'home from home.' Near Novartis campus on Voltaplatz.
My 2 year old has gone for 1 day a week for a year and a half.
There is a huge personal touch and individuality with this 'krippe.'
She will speak German or English to your child if you wish. It is flexible, affordable and incredibly family orientated, with family days throughout the year.

I may sound like i am on commission, but I am not.
I went to see many krippe's in the basel area. I liked this one the best. You may not. Go and visit as many as you can and talk to the staff/parents etc.
You may probably go back to see Home from Home!!!

Good luck in your search

I can also confirm the above recommendation for Home from Home nursery. My daughter has been going there full time since she was 1 (now 3) and I am planning to place baby number 2 there next summer.
Feel free to message me if you want any more info. I can't recommend it enough!

I'm also recommending 'Home from Home nursery'. I viewed numerous daycare centres in Basel but I chose this one and could not be happier. My daughter has now been going there for about a 1.5 yrs (she is 2.5 yrs old) and she absolutely loves it!

Re: Little foot daycare in Basel - any thoughts?

I can only say that I would never take mi child to Little foot.
I had a very bad experience with Frau Bayer the manager of the place. She only cares about the money and is very very rude. I've also heard other complains from different parents and from a student who made her practices there and she left because she didn't like how they treat the kids.
In sumary I would never put mi child there.
Hope it helps.

Re: Little foot daycare in Basel - any thoughts?

When I had my problem with ms. Bayer in Liitle Foot I felt impotent because I didn't know where or who to complain to. Finaly I found the number of the educatonal department of Basel and complained there. They were not surprise about my complain since I think a lot of people have complained. I also think it won't help much, but at least I felt better.
