Friedrich Fröbel's kindergarten.

Friedrich Fröbel's kindergarten.

Back in 1840, Friedrich Fröbel campaigned for the right of young people to have a complete education. The pastor's son subsequently founded a 'games and activity institute' in the Thuringia town of Blankenburg, which he later renamed a 'kindergarten'. The concept has become established all over the world. Today, the world's first kindergarten is home to the Friedrich Fröbel Museum, which features an exhibition on the life and work of the pioneering pedagogue.
