Vivero International Pre-school and Child Care at Balewadi is located in the heart of Baner – Balewadi vicinity. Our school prides itself on the quality of its educational and childcare programmes. The professionalism and empathy of its facilitators, enthusiastic learners and excellent support from the parents makes it one of the best place for Early Years learning & development.
We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach which is based on the principles of the learners' ability to control the direction of their individual learning, Learning becomes a discovery of varied first-hand experiences of touch, movement, listening, and observing actions. Young learners are provided with endless ways & opportunities to express themselves.
Keeping the 'Image of the Child' at the centre, our school is designed as per the natural aesthetics of Reggio. Our preschool and childcare classrooms are spacious, airy & warmly welcoming. Every space is well organized with its selection of age-appropriate programmes, books & manipulatives. Designed to best inspire the child to explore inside as well as outside the classroom, the school outdoor play areas ensure a safe, secure and well equipped environment, complete with popular items & equipment’s. The ateliers put up at several corners of the school make exploration and learning highly interesting for our young minds.
We also believe that technology in its own way plays a vital role in today’s learning process. Our specially arranged Tech Studio designed with Apple configured devices, cater to students from Nursery to K2. They are gently introduced and given access to the iPads for their research and reconnoiter of multiple child friendly educational applications under the assistance of the trained facilitators. We do not encourage immense screen time and have planned the Tech Studio usage for a once a week experience only. ’Cubetto’ and ‘Dash’, our two robot aides, make learning even more meaningful and fun.

These are a part of the enriching pre-school & childcare schedule with music sessions, introduction to a foreign language, sports and wellness classes.
