The Montessori Children's Center offers three additional classes for children to expand their learning: Music, Creative Movement Preschool Dance & Music, and Sign Language.
Every other Friday, 2 – 2:45 pm
Taught by Keta Bill
The children of MCC are invited to learn music with Keta Bill. The class teaches the children to sing and develop rhythm through nursery rhymes, melody, and movement. Last year, Keta helped the children rehearse and perform Three Billy Goats Gruff at the annual School Picnic as an end-of-the-year production.
Keta Bill, a choral and music class teacher with the San Francisco Public Schools, has a magical way of working with children. She has been teaching the music class at MCC for the past ten years.
Creative Movement Preschool Dance & Music
Wednesdays, 3 – 4 pm
Taught by Noelle DeWeese
An afterschool dance class where children have the chance to learn about rhythms and music while creating movement and dance in a fun and encouraging environment. Taught by Noelle DeWeese, the founder and Creative Director of Spindrift School of Performing Arts.
Thursdays, 11 – 11:45 am
Taught by Holly Grant
Holly visits the school once a week to give the children a casual introduction to sign language. Using puppetry, books, language games, and other creative methods, she teaches the children how to sign the alphabet, numbers and colors, and basic words and phrases.
