During now, March and April, we have been focusing on the music, art, culture, and food that make Mexico so interesting. Our students have been learning all about them with cool fun Mexican activities. ❤️⁣

We have been using our Mexican Heritage book as a tool to teach these lessons. 🎶⁣⁣🎻⁣⁣

But, we’ve also uncovered some cool fun facts about Mexico that you may not know about. ⁣

How can you, as a parent, be mindful?

At Rock and Roll Daycare, we are always telling you what we’re doing to get children’s minds moving to engage them and get them learning. While we love doing this, focusing on parents is just as important. ❤️

When you’re mindful, you’re conscious of how you’re talking to your kids. You may yell out of frustration, but this is not helping you to be mindful. If you think about how you’re talking to your child, you can have a better relationship with them. If you’d like to learn more about it with some handy tips then click this link on bio! 🥳⁣

Who we are and why we care ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s best thought of as a love story. Boy meets girl, falls head over heels, marries the girl, and then a new cycle begins. Boy becomes a daddy, and now a new story begins…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was mid-April when we knew, and it didn’t quite feel like the right timing. We were barely surviving on a touring musician’s salary, and were gearing up for another set of gigs across the country. We didn’t have health insurance, so the only hospital that would take us was 40 miles away. When considering the cost of what was ahead, we knew we didn’t have it. So, it must have been an angel that sent us to the door of a retired childcare CEO weeks later.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When my daughter was born, I felt a nervous excitement, the kind of shaky, uncertain thrill that comes at you when you step onto the stage. You know what you need to do, but you really don’t have any idea of how people are going to take it, or if they’re just going to stand up and walk out on you. Once you play that first note however, and you let your eyes wander out beyond the front row, you know that it’s time, and everything is suddenly different.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I saw my daughter for the first time, I played that first note, and the world changed. I had received a gift, and it was now my responsibility to take care of what I’d been given. Rock and Roll Daycare began as a gift to my daughter, and now my sons, and future children. I can’t help but wake up each day knowing that today is a new opportunity to nurture that gift.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People often ask what Rock and Roll Daycare is, and while we are a music based Montessori school for infants, toddlers, and preschool, my favorite answer is: Rock and Roll Daycare is a love story to my children.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our mission ✈️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rock and Roll Daycare provides families with a premium, comprehensive, full-day, year-round childcare service. Our proprietary Rock and Roll Education Method is based on the concept of “music everyday”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This unique educational model is based upon the teachings of Maria Montessori, Carl Orff, Schinichi Suzuki, and Emile Jaques-Dalcroze 🎼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The inclusion of music into our educational model speaks to the spirituality of the child. Rock and Roll Daycare believes that to partake in music and art speaks to what it means to be human. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We believe that music makes better people, and is good for the mankind 🎻 🎷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you share this belief? 🙏
