The inimitable excitement of our Summer Camp at Vivero International Preschool & Childcare drew to its closure on 27th April 2019 with a grand culmination. The event was indeed a great learning experience and highlighted the concept of sharing stories in its myriad forms. Children learnt about the various ways how a story can be narrated, enacted and expressed. Their learnings were delightfully displayed through the graphic representations that spoke for themselves. May we present you a peek into the hearts and minds of our budding story-tellers.
A playful evening was planned for toddlers as Vivero International Preschool at Aundh hosted an exclusive 'Play Date' for a lucky few. The event was a roaring success as we watched adorable toddlers making new friends and also interacting with fellow mothers'. Innovative methods of play and exciting activities like Ball Pool, Potter's Wheel, Pretend Play Corner, Dough Play kept the little guests and their 'moms' happily engaged.
To understand more about the inquiry into, 'How Food Reaches from Farm to the Supermarket", children along with their facilitators set up a pretend-play corner at the school. Sharing their learnings about the 'distribution chain' and 'the different roles' of farmers, manufacturer, transporter, factory workers, shopkeeper and customer/consumer, children verified their knowledge about the process. Children were also encouraged to participate through role-plays and each of them was keen to play their parts and use the materials in-hand to demonstrate the journey of food from the farm-to-the-table. This was yet another enjoyable session which gave children an opportunity to learn and have fun at the same time!!
The very existence of life is the 'woman'; and at the heart of everything that a woman does, there lies immense love and care. To celebrate this and all the other amazing qualities that a woman possesses, Vivero International Preschool and Childcare at Aundh, Pune held a small jubilation of womanhood on 16th March 2019. The day was chosen to pay tribute to the true essence of a woman and her remarkable heart. Mommies and their friends were invited over to school for an afternoon filled with delightful engagements.
Children of Kindergarten 2 got to experience and enjoy a one-of-a-kind ‘camping night’ at school on 19 March, 2019. As children entered school the previous evening they were greeted by pretty fairy-lights and camping tents at the compound. It was an atmosphere that wasspecially created for them along with a range of exciting games and interesting stories while they munched on some refreshments. Children also danced heartily to some peppy beats before they settled down to watch a short animated movie with welcome servings of 'popcorn'. Children had been encouraged to pre-decide their dinner menu and it had been a unanimous vote for ‘Pizza’. After a fun sleepover at school, the Camping experience concluded the next morning with a refreshing and energetic trek to ‘Vetal Tekdi’. A healthy breakfast in the open air was enjoyed by all. This was truly an experience that the children would cherish and remember. The management and teachers at school are ever grateful for supporting the idea with their 'trust' and enthusiasm to make this event a success.
Our Kindergarten II children celebrated their Graduation day on 29 March 2019. This day celebrates the completion of their Preschool learning for the outgoing students and stands out as an important day for all children and their teachers as an accomplishment of a very important milestone.
It was an overwhelming sight to see joy & pride of all the teary-eyed parents who witnessed their children dressed in royal red convocation robes and caps as they walked down a ramp decorated with their names printed on golden stars to receive their certificate of merit at the stage. The program culminated with a warm vote of thanks by our Principal and a special tribute was paid to the journey of friendship and some memories of the graduating children through a short video presentation.
"Meanwhile, at Vivero International at Aundh, Pune it was a ‘full-house-affair’ at their ‘Box Office’ for the screening of yet another classic - ‘Jungle Book’ earlier in the month of February. Excited children rushed to the ‘Vivero Bank’ and withdrew pretend-play money to buy their movie ticket at the 'Vivero Box Office'. The night was filled with laughter and glee as children enjoyed their popcorn and happy parents watched Mowgli and his Jungle friends with their little ones.
"We make a living by what we get, And make a LIFE by what we give!!
We kicked off our 'Joy of giving Week' with great fun, enthusiasm and joy. Along with our parent volunteers. The Kindergarten 2 children excitedly distributed biscuits and tea to all the passing community helpers including the nearby building guards.
More often than not, we look outside to share our happiness, joy and love. We forget the people who we work closely with.
The next day we did just that. Our didi's in school work just as hard to ensure safety of children and smooth functioning of the school. We salute them and their spirit. To show them our gratitude we planned a day of fun and frolic for them. There were games, yummy food and loads of laughter and big smiles all around.
After all ain't that the ultimate joy of giving???
Children also visited 'Little Flower English Medium School' to spend some time with the children and staff there. The experience was phenomenal. We truly and only exchanged 'Happiness'. It was an interactive and joyful session.
To culminate the Week, we visited the NGO ‘Awakening Jagruti’.. Their work areas include schools, urban slums, villages, construction sites and street children. The centre for the construction worker’s children aims at offering the children a conducive environment to develop and grow. The PRM along with a few teachers and children visited the NGO to give the contributions collected. Together, they enjoyed a snack and dance party with the children of the NGO. Our children too had a great time as they spent quality time and in the true sense experienced that “joy of living is indeed in the joy of giving”
Winter Wonderland was our carnival,
Which started with the team’s arrival,
Setting up the various stall,
Ensuring in place was all.
Tick tock- tick –tock
Went the clock,
In a flock
Ice fishing and ferris wheel,
Made the children shout in glee!!
The games and food,
Kept the crowd in a good mood.
Our Experiment Oh Corner left everyone mesmerized
Eating the nitrogen made ice cream got every one energized.
Ice sculpting and slime making was fun too
A technique that was very new.
Cubetto was the hero that day,
Telling tales and showing the way.
Our budding entrepreneurs had showcased their artwork
Albums, candle made with love and hard work.
Lemonade and cupcakes were relished by all,
Especially by children at the culinary stall.
Nail Art and Pottery added the creative mark,
Allowing children to be quirky and add some spark.
Ring the snowman game, feed the snowman game
Either ways, both required a good aim.
The winter wonderland Carnival indeed ended with a bang,
A big Thank you shouted the VIVERO Gang.

The Mud will wash off and the memories will last a lifetime!! --anonymous
Playing with mud allows children to express their creativity while enhancing their fine motor skills. Children enhanced their social skills such as cooperation, negotiation, communication, and sharing as they worked together in the pretend play corner.
Vivero International Pre-school & Childcare, Aundh organised a Mud Day for children to celebrate nature, the glorious earth beneath our feet, and the joy of making a mess by getting really muddy.
They were engaged in activities like finding their garden friends in mud, to splattering mud over the wall. As a takeaway they created a soil garden made with crumpled choco cake and jelly worms.
It was indeed a happy muddy-licious day!!
