Bilingual Montessori (or democratic) primary schools?


Does anyone know of any bilingual (or not, it does not HAVE to be bilingual if it is the right place) Montessori primary schools around the Basel area, or elsewhere in Switzerland? (Can be German/English or French/English or even, I suppose Italian/English!).

Does anyone have any opinions on the (monolingual (German)) Montessori primary school in Basel?

Or on this (also monolingual (German)) democratic school in Zielebach

Finally, does anyone know of any networks in Switzerland of parents looking at the above-sorts of educational philosophies for their children ----- promoting the intrinsic motivation of the child, supporting autonomy, trusting the child (etcetc)) AND/OR any parents who are "unschooling" (as opposed to homeschooling).

Phew! Lots of questions....

Would love to hear from anyone on any of the above.... many thanks in advance

Currently unschooling Mum of a 3 and 2 year old wondering what to do next!

Hello Olivita,
your post is not new, so maybe you have already received some information. I write not to provide you information, but because I'm also interested in feedback about the Futura Montessori in Basel.
Have you got any direct/indirect experience with this school?
