Early Years Facilities
Ulmenhof (or Elms Court) is the historical name of our Early Years building in the heart of Basel. It is a beautiful mansion that radiates Swiss charm and character. It has been sympathetically renovated to create a fit-for-purpose Early Years learning environment.
It has large rooms for our Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School children as well as a room with soft play equipment and a multi-purpose room used for musical movement and other activities.
There is a secure internal garden that the children can use under supervision throughout their day.
Lower Primary Facilities
Our younger Primary School children are accommodated in a renovated coach house situated in the grounds of Ulmenhof. This contains classrooms for our Reception and Year 1 classes, a room dedicated to teaching German and a large multi-purpose area for Music, Physical Education and weekly assemblies.
There is direct access to the playground which incorporates the outdoor garden area as a learning environment to support and enhance the curriculum.
Upper Primary Facilities
The older Primary School children from Year 2 - 7 attend school in another spacious historic mansion on St. Alban-Vorstadt, in a quiet neighbourhood of historic homes in the heart of the old city. The school building is situated one street behind the river Rhine and is approximately a ten-minute walk from our Early Years and Lower Primary location. It is a protected building that has been sympathetically renovated to accommodate all the academic needs of our children.
The building also benefits from a music hall, a science room, language classrooms, a fitness and movement hall, a kitchen for our daily hot-lunch service and a suite of libraries for the children's use.
An attractive internal courtyard provides the opportunity for children to go outside and play games at lunchtime and breaktime
