I’ve been taking my son (now 15 months) to the Monday BCT playgroup for the last 6 months, almost every week. It’s a great space for him to play and meet other children. The volunteers do amazing work running the group. I love the atmosphere. We always feel welcome and included. Beyond the playgroups the BCT organizes many other activities. Now that Leo is becoming a better walker we are looking forward to joining one of the upcoming nature detective walks!

Alessandro, Father of 1

Moving to Basel from the U.S. while pregnant with my first baby has been an exciting adventure with unique challenges. It was such a relief to find the BCT community and meet other incredible mothers who have already successfully learned how to navigate the healthcare system, Swiss life, and parenting, in general. They provide the social support I need being away from family and friends, and their advice has been invaluable! Each week I look forward to attending the Bumps & Babes playgroup as an expecting mother where I feel fully welcomed and completely at ease with my new “family” here.
