ABOUT US

``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 three sons, and 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.`` Christopher Vuk - Founder

MONTESSORI MUSIC LAB CURRICULUM

Developed by the research and development wing of Rock and Roll Daycare, these groundbreaking music materials include Illustrated Songbooks, Audio Recordings, and New Classroom Musical Instruments. It harmoniously incorporates Montessori philosophy, music and cultural studies and is designed to offer pre-readers a deeper understanding of music notation and cultural diversity.


TESTIMONIALS

Kaiyi really enjoyed preschool at Rock and Roll, and he continues to sing many of the songs that he learned there. The music is really great and it's what makes RRDC different from other preschools. Thanks for running such a wonderful program! (M. Xu, Parent)

Our twins boys have loved rock n' roll since they started, they are always excited to go to school, and they come home singing and dancing. The teachers and staff are really wonderful and caring. Catered food is wonderful and makes life so much easier. (A. Natenshon, Parent)

I highly recommend the Rock & Roll East Cambridge. There is a daily music component, which seems good for providing entertainment and intellectual stimulation. The school puts a lot of thought into educating the children in an age appropriate manner. (A. Y., Parent)
