HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Early learning support and parent education» in the region of Basel (both sides)
The programmes offered by the HEKS/EPER Basel Regional Office make a vital contribution to social cohesion and the inclusion of disadvantaged people in society. Through its advocacy work it promotes equal opportunity for all, irrespective of culture, religion, status and gender. Another important cause is the promotion of harmonious coexistence between migrants and locals. The Regional Office works closely with cantonal churches, regional and cantonal authorities as well as with private institutions.

Head of the Regional Office:
Mothers and fathers who speak a foreign language often lack information about how best to prepare their children for kindergarten and school. In the regions of Basel Stadt/Baselland and Western Switzerland, HEKS/EPER supports foreign language-speaking mothers and fathers with practical ideas for the targeted stimulation of their infants so as to develop their motor, cognitive, language and social skills. In addition, parents learn about family-oriented facilities such as playgrounds and family and cultural centres. They also get to meet other families, thereby becoming better socially networked. In Berne and Eastern Switzerland, HEKS/EPER also offers German language courses geared to mothers and their preschool children.
Project Basel-Stadt and Baselland
