The Scholar's Choice Network
Scholar's Choice has been serving the needs of early childhood centres across Canada for 70 years. We are proud to be the oldest and largest distributor of educational materials and toys in Canada.
Our Company's early predecessor was Jack Hood School Supplies, a company founded in Stratford, Ontario in 1939. Jack Hood School Supplies grew and prospered as a school supply company and library book distributor. In 1969, Jack Hood and Nor-Ed School Supplies in North Bay, Ontario were purchased by Harlequin Enterprises and the romance book company merged under the name Scholar's Choice. This company was run by Bill Webster until 1977, when he left for a position at Harlequin corporate office.
