The Learning Station is an American educational children's musical group, comprising the husband-and-wife team Don and Laurie Monopoli, and their friend Jan Hrkach.[1]

Laurie and Don Monopoli founded the group in Connecticut before moving to Melbourne, Florida in the late 1980s. At that time, Hrkach, who also partnered with Monopoli in a Brevard County recording studio, joined the group.[2] The group has released multiple albums, and performed across the US.[2] Group member Laurie Monopoli has an early childhood education degree, and develops the educational content of their concerts and recordings.[3]
