The British and Foreign Society organised a complete exhibition of Kindergarten work and materials, to which all the chief London Kindergarten establishments (including Croydon) contributed; and most establishments gave lessons in turn, weekly, to classes of children, in order to show publicly the practical application of Kindergarten methods. These lessons were given gratuitously in the rooms devoted to the Kindergarten section of the exhibition. In October this section was closed by a conference of Kindergarten teachers from all England, held in the Lecture Theatre of the Albert Hall.
Autumn.—Dr. Wichard Lange, the biographer of Froebel, and collector of Froebel’s works (from whose collection the present translation has been made), and by his numerous articles one of the best friends to the advocacy of Froebel’s educational principles, died, under somewhat painful circumstances.
