About us

The Montessori-Brigitte-Kindergarten was founded in 1979 as the first Montessori-Kindergarten in Basel and as an integrating kindergarten endeavors to accompany children with or without disabilities after the principles of Italian doctor and pedagogue Maria Montessori. Taking into account the cantonal policies, children learn the necessary educational abilities and are supported in the development of their whole personality.

In a warm and cordial atmosphere children learn to accept and respect each other and themselves. Our goal is to include children in everyday life, to educate them to a cooperative behaviour and to support them in their natural use of learning to think and act.


We are neither bound by ideologies nor by confessions and are first and foremost committed to the interests of each individual child. We are a private kindergarten and admitted by the state and AMI (Assoziation Montessori Internationale).
