What began in 1998 as a business run out of Diane Shaw and John Foo's basement has blossomed into an empire of three brick-and-mortar shops, a warehouse, and an online emporium bursting with handy teaching tools and toys. Education Station's extensive collection supports the healthy mental and physical development of kids of all ages, whether they're honing fine motor skills or penning thought-provoking postmodern critiques of children's literature. Youngsters share quality time with parents and siblings over informative games, puzzles, and playthings, and teachers shape bright young minds with classroom supplies and lesson-plan supplements. Each shiny new e-book, fun toy, and challenging puzzle is hand-selected and fosters long-term learning and intellectual development.
