What our families say

"ELA Basel is like a 'home away from home' for my two children in Early Years. It makes all the difference to our family knowing how much care and attention each child receives in a safe, secure and nurturing setting"

Early Years Family, June 2020

"I would like to repeat again that the teachers did an amazing job during the school closure, the best they could in the situation. Both my kids have been able to go through this with a smile. Thank you!"

P5 Parent, May 2020

"I’m an Early Years parent and think that ELA Basel’s level of communication and responsiveness has been outstanding. I appreciate the helpfulness of the home lesson plans, but nothing can replace the social and intellectual stimulation my child is getting at ELA Basel. Thank you to all of the staff for their continued support during the lockdown."

Early Years Parent, May 2020

"I’m impressed by how quickly ELA Basel staff worked to immediately continue learning during these difficult times of the pandemic. We have friends back home in the US whose children received no online/home learning for over a month while the schools navigated how to continue. I’m very grateful for the school and teachers hard, dedicated work to continue teaching my children. Thank you!"

P4 Parent, May 2020

"My children truly loved their time at ELA Basel which is a truly caring school. We are very grateful that we found your school and our children had the opportunity to learn at ELA Basel."

P6 Family, June 2020

"We've had nothing but a pleasureable experience during our time at ELA Basel. It's a wonderful school with excellent leadership. Not to mention the teachers were of the highest quality with small class sizes. ELA Basel is a special place that is doing wonderful things. Keep it up!"
