How the little ones come out on top
Basel operates a child and family-friendly social policy: the City invests a great deal in additional family day care and is expanding its services for families even further.
Children and young people benefit from optimal medical and nursing care in the University Children’s Hospital.
There is a park and several playgrounds in every district. Neighbourhood streets with reduced speed limits make outdoor playing and exercise safer. The Children’s Office is committed to the needs of children in the planning and design of the living environment, and is an advocate for the rights of children. And the Familienpass (Family Pass) provides children and their parents with reduced price entry to swimming pools, skating rinks, the zoo or the cinema. But this list doesn’t include by far all the measures, amenities and facilities available for families, teenagers and children.
