BANGALORE: Valentine day was marked with various celebrations across the city and ‘Tree House’, a chain of non-franchised pre-school company in India celebrated the occasion with grandparents of the children in their school as ‘Grandparents Day’ and provided an opportunity to spend some quality time by dancing and singing

together.

The event took place at Shantinagar branch of Tree House from 11 to 12 am on February 14.

This was an unique way to teach the kids the meaning of love, pertaining to how love is pure and eternal to the world. Tree House had invited both maternal and paternal grandparents to be a part of this unique event. There were a series of activities lined up for the children as well as the grandparents — performances by children for grandparents, followed by singing and games. However, the main attraction of the entire event was Antakshari where the grand parents danced merrily, giving each other a strong competition. All those present at the event were enamoured by the performance of the young-at-heart grandparents. Commenting on the participation, Ravi Warrior of COO of South (Tree House) said, “The participation was amazing, as 30 grandparents turned up for the occasion and had a good time with their grandchildren.”

He added, “We have integrated this programme with our course and every year we celebrate valentine’s day as grandparents day, since they are the ones who build the roots for the family. Afterall, children and grandparents have a special

bonding together.”

Speaking on the success of the event, Rajesh Bhatia, managing director of Tree House said, “In most families, both the parents are working and thus it is the grandparents who help them in bringing up the child.”
