He believed that humans are essentially productive and creative, and that fulfillment comes through developing these in harmony with God and the world. His vision was to stimulate an appreciation and love for children, to provide a new but small world for children to play with their age group and experience their first gentle taste of independence.
His kindergarten system consisted of games and songs, construction, and gifts and occupations. The play materials were what he called gifts and the activities were occupations.
His system allowed children to compare, test, and explore.
His philosophy also consisted of four basic components which were free self-activity, creativity, social participation, and motor expression. Froebel’s kindergarten system grew internationally as an educational movement. It is a well established part of the American school system as well as many other parts of the world.
This document was written by Jessica Barrwho comments: Friedrich Froebel was fun to research because I want to teach in grades k I love small children but they are a lot of responsibility so I agree with and respect Froebel’s beliefs.
I believe that small children learn better with hands on activities and need to explore their creative abilities. Inventing Kindergarten uses extraordinary visual materials to reconstruct this successful system, to froebdl young children about art, design, mathematics, and nature.
