Cultural Currents

Rock and Roll Daycare is committed to developing global citizens with an appreciation and understanding of peoples and cultures from around the world and in our local community. Every two months, a new culture is integrated into the classroom and music curricula. Students learn about new cultures through community ambassador visits, singing songs in foreign languages, retelling folklore, and creating visual art inspired by our focus culture. At the end of the study period, students perform and display their hard work at community International Nights, featuring parent/child cooking, a community potluck, and performances from guest artists. Past performers include Mariachi bands, Bharatanatyam artists, Irish steppers, Samba groups, youth Chinese instrumental ensembles, Opera singers, traditional Korean dancers, and many more.
