Kindergarten means a garden of children, and Froebel, the inventor of it, or rather, as he would prefer to express it, the discoverer of the method of Nature, meant to symbolize by the name the spirit and plan of treatment. How does the gardener treat his plants? He studies their individual natures, and puts them into such circumstances of soil and atmosphere as enable them to grow, flower, and bring forth fruit, -- also to renew their manifestation year after year. [Mann, Horace, and Elizabeth P. Peabody, “Moral Culture of Infancy and Kindergarten Guide,” Boston, 1863]
