Our Story

Proudly serving you for over 26 years!

We are a family-owned, educational resource company who has been serving the needs of our valued customers and community for over 26 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's journey began in 1998 when owners Diane Shaw and John Foo started with just 20 products from their basement. Diane's teaching background and John's business acumen created a company with outstanding learning products and a commitment to exceptional customer service. With unwavering support from our customers and dedicated staff, we've experienced growth, learning, and expansion.

Over the years, our locations evolved to meet the demands of our growing business. In 2018, we consolidated our North store, offices, and warehouse into a spacious standalone building on 156 Street. The fall of 2020 saw the relocation of our South retail store to a fantastic new spot at 2812 Calgary.  A new chapter unfolded for Education Station in October 2023 under the new ownership with Elevate Partners Capital (EPC), a private equity firm that specializes in growing Alberta's local businesses, to access additional resources and capital, expand our product offerings and enhance our customer service.

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.
