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 โ€œmusic everydayโ€. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
This unique educational model is based upon the teachings of Maria Montessori, Carl Orff, Schinichi Suzuki, and Emile Jaques-Dalcroze ๐ŸŽผ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
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. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
We believe that music makes better people, and is good for the mankind ๐ŸŽป ๐ŸŽท โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

We are a family of four who love to travel and introduce our kids to new experiences. Our mantra has always been to incorporate our kids into our "regular lives" as much as possible, even if it may seem difficult at times. This has allowed us to share many things with them, while also seeing the world through their eyes. Our "story" has only just begun!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

๐Ÿ“Œ Our two sons started daycare (at RRDC) when they were 12 weeks old, following my maternity leave. It's all they know! They have both learned so much at school, and as working parents, we always felt that we were providing them with a great foundation for their development and growth. The social aspect has been tremendous as well and is very important for kids early on. We are not experts on educating children, so for us, it was a no-brainer to utilize daycare.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
