Friedrich Froebel, Maria Montessori and Rudolf Steiner are three of the main educational pioneers who have influenced the early childhood reform over the last century. Foucault Freidrich Froebel (1782-1852) Freidrich Froebel was born in Germany in 1782. His mother died when he was nine months old and he was brought up by an uncle who sent him to school. At this school he learnt about the natural world as well as studying maths and languages. This experience influenced his approach to teaching children. Weber enveloped ‘As an idealist, Froebel believed that every child possessed, at birth, his full educational potential, and that an appropriate educational environment was necessary to encourage the child to grow and develop to an optimal manner.’ (www.geocites.com) cal1966 Froebel considered parents to be the main educators of their children and he thought schools should be communities in which the parents are welcome to join their children. He also believed that children learn outdoors in the garden, as well as indoors. He encouraged movement, games and the study of natural science in the garden. Froebel founded the first Kindergarten (literally, garden for children) in Prussia in 1840. not ed redistribute>GET ANSWER
