Daycare kid singing inappropriate song

I'm not sure if she has the words wrong (though I doubt it). It's two lines and I can't remember it properly now, something something ho and a rock star girl. I didn't say anything because I wasn't sure I should be telling her the word ho is a not nice word. At least the other kids are too little to copy her today but on friday there will be an girl there her age. Should I say something or just ignore it? Maybe just say, "Let's sing a different song"? I don't want the song to suddenly get attention either.

Re: Daycare kid singing inappropriate song

I would say something like "thats not a song we sing at daycare" or get her into a different song. Maybe play some kids music for her to sing and dance around to, might get a new song stuck in her head

I wouldn't make a big fuss over it, just distract her with a different song. I would mention something to the parents though. I'm often horrified by the things DS picks up on and repeats. I often need my eyes opened!

This is what I would do. While my children are not in daycare, I would not appreciate them hearing that and repeating it. As a parent, I would appreciate you asking the child to sing a different song. And, as the daycare provider, I think you have every right to do that. If they were saying something even more offensive, you would certainly ask them to stop.

How old is she? I agree with others who say try getting her into another song, or if she is really fixated on that one you could get her into a game where you make up silly new lyrics.

I had a boy sing me the bad lyrics to the song "Payphone". He only sang me the bad lyrics, so I know he knew he wasn't supposed to. He's four, and I told him I didn't want to hear that song again. He never did it again.
