About The Company
Lakeshore is one of the most innovative manufacturers of educational materials in the country. Lakeshore was founded in 1954 when Ethelyn Kaplan, a single mother, moved her family to California and opened a toy store. When educators began asking for teaching supplies, Ethelyn realized a higher calling of serving the educational community. Over six decades later, Lakeshore has grown into a global community—with a thriving e-commerce business, multiple catalogs, 60+ retail stores, a national sales force and international supply chain offices. We credit our success to the passion and enthusiasm of the remarkable individuals who make up our team.
