Friedrich Froebel: The Man Who Started Kindergarten

By Jennifer Kenny
1     You may never have heard about Friedrich Froebel. However, you probably have heard of what he did. He created kindergarten.
 
2     Froebel was born on April 21, 1782. He was born in the country we now call Germany, but at that time it was known as Prussia. His childhood was not a happy one. He had very little schooling. He read a lot. He also observed nature. He trained as a forester. He was able to take some classes at the University of Jena.
 
3     In 1801, Froebel went back home to help his sick father. His father died the next year. Friedrich's training came in handy when he became a clerk in the department of forestry. He took a job as a private secretary in 1804.
