FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is VIVERO International any different from any other preschool?
Yes, this is a new direction in Early Childhood Care and Education for India, founded on the socio-cultural principles that children learn from quality interactions and relationships with people, places, and things through exploring and discovering in an affirmative and supportive environment. The child-focused curriculum centres around a learning approach based on each child’s strength and ability.
Will my child be taught the fundamentals?
Yes, this is a new direction in Early Childhood Care and Education for India, founded on the socio-cultural principles that children learn from quality interactions and relationships with people, places, and things through exploring and discovering in an affirmative and supportive environment. The child-focused curriculum centres around a learning approach based on each child’s strength and ability.
What about reading and writing?
Teachers work to plan goals, experiences, and projects for individual and group learners that match their learning styles and developmental possibilities. These goals include competencies in literacy, numeracy, arts and sciences. A child-focused environment challenges learners to discover and apply basic skills through active exploration, projects and research. All the fundamentals of literacy, numeracy, and science are incorporated into the daily curriculum.

In addition to this the learning environment provides ample opportunity to explore values, broaden communication skills, collaborate with peers, enhance problem solving skills, develop ideas and explore information through artistic means.
How old should my child be to enroll at your school?
Children can enroll with us as per the following age groups:
  • Pre-Nursery: 1½ – 2½ yrs
  • Nursery: 2½ – 3½ yrs
  • K1: 3½ – 4½ yrs
  • K2: 4½ – 5½ yrs
What is your admission system?
Our school’s academic year runs from June to April. The academic year is divided into 4 terms of approximately ten weeks each. Admission will be granted during other months also as per seat availability.
What is the teacher-child ratio?
At VIVERO International, we maintain a healthy teacher-child ratio. Additionally, we have school attendants who support the teachers in the daily routine.
The teacher-child ratio of all grade levels is as follows:
Pre-Nursery-1:8
Nursery-1:10
Kindergarten I & II-1:12
Since my child will eventually have to go to a primary school wouldn't it be better to make the transition in Kindergarten rather than in first grade?
It has been observed that children graduating from our schools have an excellent start as compared to children from other schools. The Reggio Emilia approach ensures that children are self confident, independent, enthusiastic and generally adapt to all sorts of new situations. In addition to this, the curriculum also includes enriched lessons in math, reading, languages, science, arts and other cultural areas. The Vivero child is known to be more evolved than his/her peers studying in Kindergarten Schools.
How can parents play the role of partners in the child’s learning process?
Valuable learning experiences also take place outside of the school setting. The benefit of time spent with family and friends, extracurricular interests, discoveries made through play is a critically important element for the child’s well being. As parents you have a strong influence on your child’s learning, by taking the time to talk, plan, experiment, play, laugh, and create with your child. This is perhaps the most important homework assignment of all.
Do you provide school transport?
VIVERO International provides safe and secure bus transport. The transport charge varies as per the distance and is not a part of the tuition fee.
