    First and foremost, Smart Start Learning is an Indigenous company and a Canadian company! Smart Start Learning is an educational publishing company that has been serving schools and educational programs nation-wide for nearly two decades. The company sprang up from one teacher’s passion and desire to integrate Indigenous content and resources in the classroom. However, twenty years ago, Indigenous educational resources were almost non-existent, especially accurate and culturally supportive resources. So, in order to achieve her desire of incorporating Indigenous content in the classroom, the teacher took matters into her own hands. Using both her teaching knowledge and experience, along with her degrees in Native Studies and Psychology, this teacher produced and published an educational book that solely focused on Indigenous content. Needless to say, this book was a huge success, and it set in motion Smart Start Learning; a company solely focused on producing Indigenous educational resources.
     Maxine Hadubiak is the teacher and the founder of Smart Start Learning. Maxine operates her business alongside her best friend and husband, Darren Quibell. Darren is a vital part of Smart Start Learning and so too, is his Métis and Indigenous heritage. Darren plays an important part in co-authoring, research and marketing, and his awesome photography makes Smart Start Learning resources second to none!
     Creating and publishing educational resources that are second to none, one-of-a-kind, and unrivaled is what Smart Start Learning strives to achieve.  Smart Start Learning strives to instill a love for learning and educating. Lastly, Smart Start Learning strives to inspire students and educators to be the very best that they can be, and to dream; and dream BIG!
We thank you for your years of patronage!
