Oh Hello!

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! This is me, Gaby and I'm the one woman show behind Sticks & Stones Education: chooser of inventory, chief photographer, stocker of shelves, copywriter, packer of orders and runner of the socials, and website builder.

I'm also an Early Childhood Teacher and I am currently working in a primary school setting. I made the leap from Long Day Care centre manager to primary and preschool teacher in 2019 and its given me back a balanced life! Plus it's let me grow this gorgeous business of mine.

I'm also an accidental cat rescuer, lover of coffee, pickled jalepenos and virgin mojitos. That should explain the random kittens and mexican feasts I might share along the way.

Sticks & Stones Education has beautiful resources that supports childrens numeracy learning. In this photo there are felt balls, auslan counting discs, felt numbers and butterflies all in a beautiful wooden tamarind shaped sorting tray.

I ordered presents for my niece and my own children and they are even better than they looked online. It’s precious to get presents that are beautifully made, environmentally friendly and educationally fun, without breaking the bank. Gaby contacted me to confirm something and went above and beyond to get everything to me quickly and packaged beautifully, despite lockdowns. I couldn’t be more delighted!


I have purchased from Sticks and Stones Education for around 4 years now. They are one of only a handful of businesses I buy from regularly.

I return because of the range and quality of products and the customer service is second to none. The product knowledge is excellent. I’d highly recommend this small business.
