Our Story

Proudly serving you for over 22 years!

We are a family-owned, educational resource company who has been serving the needs of our valued customers and community for over 22 years! Our website, catalogue and retail stores are filled with bright ideas and great learning tools for teachers, schools, childcare centres, parents and kids.

Education Station began in 1998 with 20 products being sold out of the basement of current owners Diane Shaw and John Foo.  Diane's teaching background and John's business experience and people skills created a company with great learning products and a passion for customer service.   With the support of our great customers and wonderful staff, over the years, we have grown, learned, moved and expanded. In 1999, we moved into our first retail / warehouse location on Fort Road in Edmonton. In 2001, we launched our first website and won an award for the best website in our industry. After 5 years, we had outgrown our space and went looking for a more visible retail presence. In July 2004, we moved into our bright, 4000 square foot, Northwest Edmonton location. In the spring of 2007, we took over an additional 5000 square feet of warehouse space in the same North City Centre complex and moved our growing website and catalogue operations there. In November 2007, we proudly opened a beautiful, 5000 square foot location in South Edmonton Common. In 2018, we moved our North retail store, our offices and our warehouse all under one roof in our beautiful, new, larger, stand alone building on 156 Street.   We were excited to move our South retail store to a wonderful new location at 2812 Calgary in the fall of 2020.  Our continued growth has been a result of the great community support of our local business and has allowed us to extend our commitment to children, families and learning.

We carry thousands of the highest quality products the educational industry has to offer. We carefully select each item to bring you the best, proven, and most current learning tools available. We strive to give educators and parents peace of mind and personal satisfaction in providing their students and children with the best learning devices and materials that stimulate childrens' interest and enhance life-long learning.

Our new website  features thousands of carefully chosen educational materials for the Canadian classrooms, childcare centers and families. We hope you will enjoy surfing around our website, browsing through our custom Canadian catalogue, or stopping by one of our 2 retail locations in the Edmonton area.

Thank you to all our loyal customers and to all our new customers, we hope the time you spend on our website will be the beginning of your exciting "Education Station" experience.
