Care and well being

Two children talking and smiling together

Parents tell us that their children thrive at ELA Basel. The combination of a rigorous and creative curriculum, small class sizes and dedicated and highly qualified staff create the ideal environment for children to feel supported and empowered in their learning. Above all, the children enjoy coming to school each day and, as we all know, happy children make the best learners.

Our mission is to value, care for and educate 'the whole child' by providing a well-rounded education that offers each individual child unique opportunities for academic, social and emotional growth. An ELA Basel education provides an essential foundation for the secondary school years and beyond. An ELA Basel education is for life!
