Hi and a great big welcome to you!

I’m Jessica McKenna, an Educational Enrichment Consultant passionate about helping busy moms with more than enough on the go make learning at home meaningful and a means of connecting with their children in a profound way.

Learning doesn’t have to be complicated to be meaningful.

With a background in Educational Psychology and early years research, having taught in elementary school (kindergarten to grade four), as well as running my own daycare and preschool, I came to find that fellow moms wanted an easy way to make learning through play easy at home, too.

And that’s why I created BooksBeesAndABCs.com, because ultimately I want amazing moms who are strapped for time to know that learning doesn’t have to be complicated to be meaningful. I’ll show you how you can work it into your day, use it as a way to connect with your children without the overwhelm and let you watch your child flourish without adding to your already busy day.  

It’s Jessica’s hope that you find support, encouragement and balance in being a mom, and being you.

You’ve got this, Momma!

I love hearing from my readers and really appreciate your feedback. Discussion is so key to what I offer here to support fellow moms in providing enriching opportunities for toddlers, preschoolers and those in early years education.
