Kindergartners in Lauren Esposito’s class at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School recently ventured outdoors to create watercolor paintings portraying the spring scenery. This hands-on activity was a celebration of National Kindergarten Day, which honors the birthday of German teacher Friedrich Wilhelm August Frobel, who started the first kindergarten in 1837. Frobel’s contributions laid the foundation for modern education, recognizing that children learn through play and experience.
