Open Door Basel has a long history in Basel. Its doors first opened in 1984 as a parent/toddler group providing social support for English speaking families living in the area.
As the club grew in popularity, so too did the offerings. Staff were eventually employed to run an official playgroup, and a beginner’s afternoon reading and writing class was also introduced.
More than three decades later, Open Door Basel has become known throughout the Basel area as a reputable, reliable centre providing daily playgroups and eight levels (from beginners to advanced) of English literacy classes.
We remain a non-profit organisation, overseen by a volunteer committee and run by experienced staff who know all too well how important it is to have high standards of care and education.
Open Door Basel is governed by a volunteer committee dedicated to ensuring quality care and high educational standards.
