Product Availability

We are committed to supporting you and will continue to deliver to schools, nurseries and homes. Like many businesses however, our stock levels are being stretched on certain products due to manufacturing and delivery delays as many suppliers recover from Covid related closures. We are working hard across our supply base to improve availability for both stocked items and those listed as direct delivery. Some direct delivery items may be subject to extended delivery times. Please check with our Customer Service team for the latest updates and availability, especially if the item is required urgently.

Chris Mahady, Managing Director, commented ‘We are working hard during the COVID-19 crisis to ensure teachers, SBMs, nursery workers, childminders, parents and care givers are supported appropriately. We have introduced a range of free resources to cover early years and primary learning and will continue to support both professionals and parents in every way possible. From all at LDA, we want our teaching and education community to know their work in these challenging circumstances is very much appreciated.’
