Lakeshore Learning Materials

New Facility for Growing Operations.

Lakeshore Learning Materials is the premier manufacturer of educational materials for elementary programs, early childhood organizations, and parents around the country. Lakeshore has experienced continuous growth – with catalogs, a thriving web business, and 60 store locations nationwide – since its inception in 1954. For the company’s first facility on the eastern half of the country, Lakeshore Learning was drawn to Kentucky by its wonderful sense of community and the state’s rich history of supporting families, education, and businesses alike.
