Shop information

  • Orders can be picked up at our Woolloongabba warehouse or shipped directly to you.

  • Shipping costs are calculated during the checkout process and our delivery services are currently provided by Sendle.

  • For local pickup, please ensure that you have received confirmation that your order is ready prior to coming to the warehouse. Typical lead times are 2 to 3 weeks.

  • Use the Categories list to search via Box Type, Learning Area or Year Level, or use the 'Search' bar to enter key words.

  • Maxi packs contain the equivalent of three large boxes worth of materials - enough for around 100 participants. They require their own product in the shop so shipping is calculated accurately, but contain the same variety of materials as the smaller alternative.  Keep the 'Box Size' field blank to make them visible.

  • By using the Educator's Shop you agree to the Website Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy.  Please ensure you have read and are comfortable with both of these documents prior to using the Shop.

  • The payment service provider is Paypal, but you do not need to have a Paypal account to pay for your purchases.  As long as you have a Visa or Mastercard, you will be able to use the Paypal payment platform.

  • If you are shopping for a school or a child care centre, you can pay after we've sent your purchases to you.  Choose the 'Pay upon Invoice' option during checkout and we'll contact you to confirm your order afterwards.
