Workshop Descriptions

Workshops with Sukey Molloy

Sukey Molloy offers a provocative new look at how movement, rhythm and music nourish the developing brain. Workshop participants establish a ground work for creating new curriculum ideas in circle time routines, and participate in lively and engaging learning concepts. Workshops provide an opportunity to observe, absorb and experience an atmosphere of exploration through physical play and song with hands-on play materials, and are fun, informative, and intellectually stimulating! Workshop hosts are invited to choose from among three workshop offerings; 2 hr, 3 hr, or 5-6 hr types.
