Meet our team

“When I first arrived here at East Cambridge I instantly felt like I was home. The admin was understanding the staff was welcoming.

Now as the director I constantly try to maintain that sense of home that I felt when I first started. When new employees join our team I make it a point to check in and see what I can do to ease their transition into our program. Questions I always ask new employees “are how do you like to be appreciated” and “how do you like to receive information?”.

We want to make sure we are respecting everyone’s personalities while maintaining an open line of communication.”

“With being a first-time mom once upon a time and having to drop my newborn child off at daycare I remember the sense of fear and worry that can over me.

What I enjoy most about being part of the RRDC community is being that voice of reason and calm to new families. Making them feel welcome and confident in their choice in trusting us with their most prized possession.

Being able to provide them the reassurance and peace of mind that their child is not only in a great learning and safe environment, but loving and caring one surrounded by trained and qualified professionals. “

Hello everyone,

We are TQ and Christian along with our children JZ and Skylar sending you and your family our warmest regards. We hope everyone is staying healthy.

6 years ago, we led a corporate life with long hours in large Boston offices and often felt something was missing from our lives. Then we took a chance on a free-lance job in LA, had our first born and were thrust into the world of parenthood. That’s when our journey led us to many self realizations. We wanted to combine our passion for early education and entrepreneurship. We spent countless hours researching daycares. Another crossed country move later for another assignment in New York city, we stumbled upon Mozart for Munchkins, a concert series specifically geared toward infants to kindergarteners. Seeing how our son swayed and danced to Bach, Mozart and Gershwin’s music, how his face lit up while he marveled at the violin and the tuba during the instruments petting zoo; we were convinced that music has a profound impact on young children’s cerebral development. Little did we know that when we moved back to Boston to be closer to family that our journey would lead us to bringing Mozart for Munchkins here, eventually discovering Rock and Roll Daycare, and be presented with the opportunity to continue the stewardship of music montessori early education developed by Chris Vuk and team.

We are very excited for this new adventure. We are fully invested in the success of each and every member of the Rock and Roll family: as operators, as parents, and as members of the community.

We’d love for your family to meet ours

Our team is excited to tell you all about our school in East Cambridge!
