Like many great enterprises, Lakeshore started with one person taking a chance. In this case, it was Ethelyn Kaplan, a single mother who decided to pack up her family and head west to California to open a toy store back in 1954. The move was a bit unconventional for a woman in 1950s America, but then again, entrepreneurs don't typically follow the status quo. Initially, Mrs. Kaplan focused on selling toys to parents, but before long, local schools started calling her for art materials and other classroom supplies. Mrs. Kaplan listened to her customers. Sensing an untapped market, she sold the store and started Lakeshore Learning Materials.
Lakeshore is dedicated to creating innovative educational materials that spark young imaginations, instill a sense of wonder and foster a lifelong love of learning. With materials for infants and toddlers through the 6th grade, they help children reach developmental milestones and achieve educational goals while still having fun. They know that each child is unique, and they strive to develop materials that appeal to children of all interests, backgrounds and abilities. And, of course, all of the products they carry must meet stringent quality and safety standards, making them strong enough for daily use in the classroom and safe enough for use by babies and children.
