Getting kids (of all ages) excited about learning is the best way to keep them motivated to learn. Sisters Jean Boylan and Jacqueline Kilian were well aware of that and put their passion for education beyond the walls of a classroom when they opened Beyond the Blackboard over a decade ago. Beyond the Blackboard isn’t just a “teacher’s store,” it’s a wonderland of resources and gifts, filled with unique products that are designed to engage children and their parents alike.
Jean and Jacqueline’s goal from the beginning was to nurture children’s confidence, both in and out of the classroom, in order to create lifelong learners who continue to have fun and be creative in their learning and their discoveries throughout their school years and beyond.

The merchandise you’ll find in Beyond the Blackboard ranges from baby toys and arts and crafts to live frogs, with gifts and products for the littlest learners to “big kids” from popular brands including Learning Academy, Think Fun, Squishable, Scholastic and Melissa and Doug, just to name a few. All the merchandise thoughtfully placed on Beyond the Blackboard’s shelves enables parents and teacher to explore the world, one subject at a time with the eager little learners in their lives.

Today, Jean, Jacqueline and their amazing staff have two retail stores filled ready and eager to serves their loyal customers. Come with ideas about what you’re looking for or questions on where to start; Beyond the Blackboard staff members are well versed on their products and happy to help ignite the fire of creativity in the curious minds of children.

With summer coming, it’s the perfect time to plan some great adventures to keep kids engaged and excited about learning. Maybe some gardening, insect observations or star gazing will be in your future! No matter the subject, Beyond the Blackboard can help you explore it!
