BCT Playgroups

BCT Playgroups are the core of the organization. They are where parents can meet weekly to connect with other parents and children can play with other children. There are four different playgroups, separated by age. They are held every week in different neighborhood centers. Join us for a playgroup or two to see if you and your child(ren) would be interested. Many parents look back on their early years in Basel with children and comment on how strong friendships were made at the BCT playgroups that continue over the years of their children's lives.
