Help finding French Kindergarten in Biel

Hi

We are moving to the Biel area in September and need to find a School for my 5 year old. Please does anyone know if there are schools in Biel where the first language is French rather than German? Failing that would it be better to move to one of the surrounding French speaking villages?

Any advice will be gratefully received.
Many thanks

Yes- you have the choice of French or German school. Look on Biel-bienne.ch for info about schools. Here's the link to the fr kindergartens

There's a phone number on the side. Call them, they're quite helpful. And don't worry, Biel is officially bilingual!

Many thanks for the information Kalli - we will make sure when looking for an apartment that we are near a French school. Is the Baby group still meeting on Thursdays as I was wondering if I could bring my 2 year old along when we arrive?

Best wishes

I got that by googling "Jardin d'Enfants Biel/Bienne". Is it helpful?
