Our young learners chose the theme ‘We wish you a World’ and through beautiful dances and acts transported the audience to the world of their dreams.
While the youngest performers, our pre- nursery children wished for a world of candies and chocolates, our nursery children settled for a world full of love! Love for mummies and daddies, love for health and fitness and love for ourselves, after all love does begin at home. It was heartwarming to see the young learners not only sway to the beats of the music, but also enjoy their time on the stage.
There was Christmas cheer all around with our K1 students singing the French rendition of the song ‘Jingle bells’.
The students of K1 and K2 came together, and, through a compelling performance, urged the audience to help them to make this world a better place. Their message of a world of peace, unity and equality was conveyed with great conviction. The infectious energy of our children passed on to our teachers as they took to the stage and culminated the show with a fabulous dance performance.
The School head, Ms. Seema Singh Puri, through her School report presentation, shared the School philosophy and highlighted some of the events and achievements of the current academic year.
The deafening applause of the audience and the heartwarming feedback of the parents is testimony to the fact that our children left the audience mesmerized

It was in this spirit that students of Vivero International Preschool and Childcare celebrated their Annual Sports Day on February 1, 2020. Our students made us all proud with the impressive display of skills, team spirit and limitless energy. It was wonderful to see our parents, grandparents and uncles and aunts turn up in great numbers to cheer the young participants. Our children put up an impressive demonstration of self-defense techniques amidst cheering and encouragement from the audience. The PE drill and Zumba by our Nursery children was energizing and invigorating for all. Our students of K1 displayed the yoga asana learnt in school with grace and control. Once the races began, the air was palpable with excitement, cheering and encouragement for our young athletes. The spirit of participation and teamwork prevailed above all as each of our children participated and cheered one another.
We would like to thank our dear parents for always being active participants in their child's learning journey at Vivero.
At Vivero International Preschool and Childcare, our children are at the centre of all that we plan and do. In sync with this approach, we organized our first Field Day on 1st February 2020 for our children of prenursery. Our young learners were accompanied by their parents as they explored some carefully thought through and planned centers which helped them work on various skills such as hand-eye coordination, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and speed amongst other things.
Games are known to encourage team building, participation and in the long run they are a great way to build character and develop personalities. The field day games were planned keeping this in mind, while also ensuring the children and parents have lots of fun. Our children explored and participated in all the activities along with their mommies and daddies with great excitement and enthusiasm. It was a day filled with fervor and exhilaration, as all our parents and children cheered one another.
Vivero International planned a playful morning for many toddlers which was their first 'Play Date'.Our toddlers made new friends and experienced innovative methods of play. Many activities like Creative Corner where buntings were created, Ball Pool, Potter's Wheel, Pretend Play Corner, Dough Play etc. were set up. Our 21st century initiatives, culinary and tech studio were the most crowded stations.
Our Annual Curriculum Meet was held on 16th November 2019. Through an interactive session the parents got a better understanding of our philosophy as well as the curriculum we offer at Vivero International Preschool and Childcare. They also got an opportunity to experience the teaching learning process and a glimpse of some of the initiatives taken by us to develop a holistic learning experience for our young learners. We would like to thank all the parents for attending this meeting and supporting us in what we do best for our children.
On 14th September 2019, our Vivero Childcare children went on an expedition to Girme Farms to understand the significance of greenery and gardening. Children explored different kinds of plants along with the tools and equipment required for gardening. They got their tiny hands messy to plant their own saplings with a promise to water and nurture them. Vivero encourages children to get in touch with the luscious greenery. Go green!
We always look forward to host our lovely grandparents and celebrate them. This year we celebrated Grandparents day on 21st September 2019, wherein we had grandparent's dressed in glitter and glaze keeping true to the theme. They participated in activities like 1 minute game, memory game and Bollywood housie. They enjoyed the karaoke booth, singing some of their all-time favorite music tracks along with some lip smacking refreshments. It was sheer joy to see the happy faces leave with a little piece of affection created by their own grandchildren as a token of love and appreciation.
The completion of children's 100 days of school, signifies the accomplishment of their first milestone. An occasion that offers the opportunity to celebrate the many smiles, stories and the bonding moments that they shared along their initial journey of learning. Vivero International celebrated the 100 days of our Pre-Nursery children on 19th September 2019 wherein our little bundles of joy walked in along with their parents to celebrate this joyous occasion. Children were greeted with star badges at the entrance which was followed by many fun activities planned for them and their parents.
Celebrations bring people together along with the enthralling pleasures of music, dance and gaiety. Vivero International celebrated ‘Ganeshotsav’ in its own unique and special ways on 10th September 2019. Children donned the vibrant colours of festivity as they came dressed in their traditional attires. The significance of the festival was imbibed in them through stories and craft activities. To celebrate the festival in an eco- friendly way they also indulged in making Ganesh idols out of clay. Children enjoyed relishing yummy modaks over sweet conversations and a lot of giggles.
Children make sense of their world by hearing, touching, seeing, tasting and smelling. During the first unit of inquiry our Nursery children were introduced to the central idea Senses help to explore the world. They were introduced to the five senses, how to use the senses and how to take care of them. Using various provocations the teacher encouraged the children to explore the concept and gave them a hands on experience thus giving them a better understanding of the world around us.
Freedom Celebration at Vivero celebrated the sense of freedom in the hearts of our little preschoolers as they came up on stage to express their thoughts on Independence.
Children were dressed in tri colored clothes and sang the song 'We shall overcome', to keep alive the belief of a better country. They discussed about our national heritage, our culture and also performed a street play on 'Clean and green is our perfect dream'.
Friendship that blossoms in the tender years of ‘childhood’, play’s an important part in the lives of children.

They say that chocolate in any language spells 'Love' and we surely can't deny this lovely thought. To have some taste of this sweet love, we celebrated Chocolate Day for our little Chocolatarians at Vivero International on 26th July 2019. Our Pre- Nursery children celebrated, 'Daddy and me chocolate day' by decorating cup cakes with colourful fudge and cream. They painted chocolate rocks with some glitter and paint. We had some heart melting and mouth watering activities for our other preschool children like, chocolate dough play, creating chocolate slime, experiments in the 'Choco Science Lab' and curating their own chocolate treats or as we call it, 'Cuddle in a cup' at our very own mini chocolate factory. We finally ended our celebration by watching the movie, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Please feel free to take a sweet look at our pictures.
Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's noncompetitive. Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self.
International Yoga Day was celebrated by the children of Vivero International Preschool with great enthusiasm.
Happy to share a few glimpses.
This summer, children were involved in a fun-filled and exciting camp at Vivero International Pre-School, Aundh during their summer break. Children actively participated in various activities that were designed to inspire imagination, arouse curiosity and encourage expression through the different mediums of storytelling. The central theme of 'One World Many Tales' involved interesting workshops with fireless cooking, music, dramatics, fitness and games.
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!!
Thank you for always sharing your hugs, smiles, words of encouragement and most importantly your 'time'.
