RBC donates amount to Caribbean Day Care
WILLEMSTAD - RBC customers who swung by the Rooi Catootje branch on Thursday, April 2nd 2015 were greeted by singing children. The performance was held by children from Caribbean Day Care in order to raise money for playground equipment. RBC rewarded the children by donating an additional amount to help them achieve their goal.
At Caribbean Day Care the children are taught to share by encouraging the children to sing for customers of local companies as a way to raise funds for a good cause. Last Christmas the children raised over 1500 guilders for the zoo. During the Easter break, the children entertained the RBC Rooi Catootje customers, while carrying a beautifully decorated container for donations. RBC supported this initiative by rewarding the children with an additional donation.
This year marks the 4thanniversary of the daycare center that is located in a former family home in the neighborhood of Gaito. Caribbean Day Care is known for its pleasant atmosphere and the healthy snacks they prepare for the kids. The children and their parents are approached in a personal way with the utmost respect for everybody’s opinion. A variety of dishes, with a lot of vegetables, are prepared fresh for the children. What makes the daycare center special is the strong focus on crafts, dance and educational games. The children learn new things every month through themed games. Public holidays are celebrated together with the parents. Carnival is celebrated with a jump-up in the streets and ‘simandikultura’ by dancing with ribbons.
