Foundations of Progressive Education : The History of the National Froebel Society Hardback
This is the story of a handful of people who changed British Education.
These people, mostly young women, were members of a society which tried to put into practice the educational philosophy and principles of Friedrich Froebel.
Following his ideas, they believed that a child's intellectual, spiritual and physical development came about through the child's own endeavours, that play was an integral part of the learning process and that every child, regardless of ability, was important.
Through heir founding of the Kindergarten movement in Great Britain, and through constant lobbying of successive ministers of education, these women and their society, The National Froebel Society, were able without doubt to fundamentally influence the evolution of education in this country.
