About Us

Dip into any Lawrence Educational book and discover a wealth of inspiration and ideas. Our innovative resources will nurture the characteristics of effective learning across the Early Years Foundation Stage and beyond.

Getting off to a good start

We are passionate about the positive impact a good early years education can make to a child’s outcomes. Our extensive range has been developed through years of research and experience and will actively engage young learners through play and exploring as they begin their learning journey.

Written by practitioners, for practitioners

Our educational resources are written by experienced practitioners and consultants including Michael Jones, Judith Twani, Maggie Johnson, Ros Bayley and Helen Bromley. Practical and relevant, they will help you to provide targeted support across key areas of learning including communication and language, physical development, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world and PSED.

Home of Beat Baby® and Steady Beat

Ros Bayley’s pioneering Steady Beat and Beat Baby® ranges feature a unique combination of books and music alongside soft toys and puppets. This multisensory approach creates an engaging and stimulating learning experience for young children and provides a strong foundation for early literacy development.
