Froebel Today

The influence of Froebel is embedded in educational practice in many countries around the world in ways that are relevant to diverse cultures, communities and families.

It is essential to understand the principles developed by Froebel rather than outdated practices, which became prescribed.

Froebel believed that each unique and individual child is part of the whole through family community and the vastness of the universe.

Froebel believed in the importance of understanding nature as part of the education of each child and learning through spending time in gardens and forests. Music and rhyme are also part of the Froebel tradition. Creating spaces conducive to learning requires each generation to think about, modify, transform and explore ways that are right for their historical time

Friedrich Froebel continues to be a resource today.
