European Integrative Preschool
Discover the new, holistic approach to education...
Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio,
and the traditional Deutscher Kindergarten,
all have their roots directly from Pestalozzi and Fröbel.
"Nature forms the child as an indivisible whole, as a vital organic unity with many sided moral, mental, and physical capacities. Each of these capacities be developed through and by means of the others."
Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
“Education consists in leading man, as a thinking intelligent being, growing into self consciousness, to a pure and unsullied, conscious and free representation of the inner law of Divine Unity and in teaching him ways and means thereto.”
When we started to teach them about language, before their language development was completed.
The History of Kindergarten (Children’s-Garden)
1746-1827 Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi developed a method of holistic education, which addressed head, heart, and hands.
Friedrich Fröbel, a man with a strong Christian family background, studied under Pestalozzi between 1808-1810. Fröbel felt that Pestalozzi was missing something of importance, the “spiritual mechanism”, stating: ”Pestalozzi takes man existing only in appearance on earth, but I take man in his eternal being, in his eternal existence.”
Fröbel incorporated 4 basic ideas in his work with children: motor expression, social participation, creativity and free self-expression.
The first Kindergarten was established in Germany in 1837, by Friedrich Fröbel, (USA, Froebel).
Maria Montessori (Italy), Rudolf Steiner (Austria) and Kurt Hahn (German) all based the development and principals of their educational programs on Friedrich Fröbel's principals and educational philosophies!
Kindergarten made its “move” to America in 1848 through Margaretha Meyer Schurz, who had studied under Fröbel and immigrated to Watertown, Wisconsin. She founded and operated out of her home, the first Kindergarten in America in 1855.
Around 1903 things started to change through the influence of Patty Smith Hill.
In the years that followed thinks went upside down, or you could say got switched. Kindergarten or better Children's Garden, became "Pre-Schooling". Academia became the main focus, before proper brain-body development was established.

For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand,
while imagination embraces the entire world,
and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
