BCT has been an incredible group to be part of. I moved countries pregnant, the pandemic hit and German is not my strong suit but BCT has provided a fantastic network of different connections with other mums and children that really helped me in this new phase of life. If it weren’t for BCT, the playgroups and wonderful mums I would miss home a lot more but BCT feels like an extended family, full of support and kindness.’


The BCT means a lot to me for many reasons. As a full time mum, new in Basel, I found true support in the BCT community. I met friends (including my best friend here in Basel) and dedicated people ready to help and to offer useful information. I soon became a Volunteer for about 2 years. I am now enjoying BCT membership with my second boy, who enjoys the BCT’s playgroups and events. I will always be a fan and advocate of the BCT as it brings a lot of value to the Basel expat community.
