Increasingly, nursery and pre-School education is the focus of international academic and governmental study, with much debate as to the right age for pre-school education to begin and the form it should take. One of the early pioneers of nursery education was Frederich Froebel. This set reprints a selection of his works which are no longer readily available, as well as writings on the reception and critique of his methods and institutions.
