Learning in Layers is Sweet!

Welcome parents, grandparents, teachers, and homeschoolers. My name is Jean and I've been working professionally with preschool-aged children for over twenty years. I'm passionate about creating exciting and engaging learning experiences through the careful coordination of cooking, stories, songs, activities, and crafts. Here you'll find fun and simple ideas that teach children through their own personal learning styles.
