Educator of the Week: Friedrich Froebel

Froebel was a German educator and a student of Johann Pestalozzi, who laid the foundation for modern education and recognized how children have their own unique and specific educational needs.

He made life “more simple and clear and more recognisable.” Froebel advocated for the Kindergarten, which has now been universally recognised and introduced by almost all the progressive countries of the world. Froebel emphasized the importance of education with children, and made them the center of his advocacy work. Today, he is regarded as one of the great exponents of child-centric education.
