Ah, Kindergarten: literally, a “children’s garden.” Those were simple times. Backpacks. Lunch pails. Line leaders. Cupcakes for the teacher.
Saturday, April 21 marks the birthday of Friedrich Fröbel, who invented Kingergarten as a space to provide for the development needs specific to young children.
We want to you to share your Kindergarten memories
