Arriving soon in Basel

Hello
I am arriving in Basel at the end of the month for a few months with my husband and 17 month old twins. Looking forward to spending the summer months enjoying the city and meeting like minded people.

Twins? You must be tired.

Welcome to the forum and welcome (soon) to Basel.

Good luck with the move and maybe we'll see you when you get here.

Re: Arriving soon in Basel

Can't wait to meet up, I've sent a PM about it - In the mean time I'll list some great playgroups that you can attend and see if these suit you:

-www.baselchildrenstrust.ch (BCT, you can attend any of the play groups before membership to see if you enjoy it) - If you have 18 month olds you can choose
-http://www.opendoorbasel.ch/ (Open Door Basel, English Speaking)
-www.kindermusic.ch (Learning with Music)
- www.centrepoint.ch (Children's playgroups and activities)

Here's some great advice from previous EF'ers as well regarding great places to go and other playgroups

Children's Activities Basel?

We'll talk more when when meet up! Enjoy the weather (hopefully not too hot).

Re: Arriving soon in Basel

Just realised last post was victim of strange predictive text alterations.. Meant to say have sent you pm re meeting.
