Notice:
Many Vendors utilize specific warranties, subscription agreements, license agreements, EULA’s, etc. (“Supplemental Agreements”) when you purchase specific goods or services from that Vendor.  Since the Supplemental Agreements do not necessarily apply to every Member, every jurisdiction, or every purchase, TIPS does NOT now negotiate the terms of those agreements on Members’ behalf.  If you are required to sign such a supplementary agreement by the TIPS Vendor, TIPS strongly encourages Members not to proceed with a purchase until they have carefully reviewed and negotiated all applicable Supplemental Agreements.  TIPS recommends you work with your entity’s legal counsel to ensure compliance with the legal requirements of your entity and your jurisdiction.

SERVICE/PRODUCTS DESCRIPTION
Kaplan Early Learning Company had its beginning in 1949 when Leon Kaplan opened a toy store in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, for the holiday buying season. Mr. Kaplan’s interest in educational books and toys led him to form the School Supply Division (known today as Kaplan Early Learning Company) in 1968. The School Supply division distributed early childhood educational materials and unique toys, showing the learning experience children can get from each one. Kaplan Early Learning Company sells products to school systems, childcare centers, and federal groups such as military child development centers and recreational programs, special needs programs and to private companies as well as the general public. Kaplan Early Learning Company has become a major distributor of early childhood educational materials in the United States. Kaplan Early Learning Company creates several catalogs each year along with sales brochures and pamphlets published periodically throughout the year. Kaplan continually strives to enhance the quality of early childhood products by offering educators outstanding materials and training. Today, Kaplan Early Learning Company is a leader in the distribution of educational materials. Kaplan currently has over 40 educational sales consultants located throughout the United States assisting customers with their educational material requirements and classroom setups. Kaplan Early Learning Company is a major supplier for Head Start (a federal program that provides disadvantaged infants and preschoolers with educational, health, nutritional, and social services). Kaplan Early Learning Company has been a family-oriented business from the very beginning. The founders, Leon and Renee Kaplan and their five children have all been involved with the business. Their son Howard Kaplan joined the company in 1969 and is now Chief Executive Officer. The Forsyth Family Focus awarded Kaplan Early Learning Company with their Family-Smart Workplace Award in April 2000. This award recognizes local companies for their work in helping employees balance work and family life. Kaplan Early Learning Company’s philosophy is simple; “We will be the premier resource and service provider in the childhood development arena, focusing on educational environments, innovative products, information and services directed toward learning readiness”. Our success lies in our strong business reputation for quality products, excellent customer service, and our role as a resource for all current and potential customers. Thanks to the dedication, loyalty, and hard work of Kaplan employees, the company has tripled in size since 1980. Kaplan Early Learning Company will continue to grow and prosper through the continued efforts of our employees working as a customer-focused team.

    As of February 2016, TIPS cannot guarantee compliance with USDA Child Nutrition Funding through state agencies , such as the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) and their regulations ARM section 17. TDA is the pass through agency in Texas for child nutrition funds to schools. The regulations require that specific quantities and detailed descriptions of goods and services be part of the solicitation. Because TIPS and many other cooperatives do not know which school members will use the cooperative’s contract and for what quantities or specific goods or services, we cannot include those details in our solicitations and thus are not usually in compliance with the USDA rules for large purchases. HOWEVER, if you are making small purchases and only quotes are required to comply, TIPS members may request quotes from qualified TIPS suppliers through our website. TIPS can supply all the documentation we have that document our processes for compliance with federal regulations in 2 CFR Part 200, such as soliciting MWBE and disadvantaged businesses, inclusion of the applicable Appendix II clauses, advertising nationally as well as locally and other processes. If you have questions, please submit to TIPS at Legal@tips-usa.com
