moving to basel in September

Hello,

I ve jsut joined the forum. My family is moving to Basel in September. We are french but we moved to England 2 years ago.
My son is nearly 2 and starts to speak English, I would like to know if there are some english creches or Nurseries in Basel? it would be great if he could be with english speaking children. Can anyone help?
Another thing, can anyone tell me where is it good to live in Basel?
Many thanks
BC

Hi,

Welcome to Switzerland soon. We too are moving in July to be with husband.
We are going to be living in Reinach and its beautiful. Its about 20 mins outside Basel. Have lived in Basel, near Messeplatz. Everywhere in and around Basel is fantastic, depends how far away from work you want to live.
Good luck

Hi BC, do a search for 'Basel, live' and you'll see you question has been covered, in detail, many times.

Allschwil is ok, I've been resident there 5 years, but the planes are a real blight.
Happy searching!

Welcome to the forum - as you're French then the obvious answer is to live across the border in France

Re: moving to basel in September

My wife works at Little Blessings. It uses the premises of (English speaking) Crossroads International Church. Open three mornings a week, easily reached by trams 10, 11

There's a also a Tuesday coffee-morning. where you can bring kids up to 5 years old. Wednesday morning, there are introductory German Lessons which connects with Little Blessings.

Close to the 16 tram, 36, 37, 47 busses, and the 10, 11 and E11 trams. (Dreispitz, Leimgrubenweg).

(Unfortunately, there's a problem with the website at the moment, but the main site is there - if you want more info, send me a private message for the time beaing)
