Froebel’s Death & Kindergartens Future

• Froebel took his last breath on June 21st, 1852.

• Kindergarten was then closed to be free and was sent underground and into homes.

•Before his death, he sent the idea to the United States as early as 1836 because it was most culturally appropriate because of its freedoms.

•Kindergarten is now what it is based on the ideas of Friedrich Froebel.
