The Kindergarten in Benevolent Institutions. Bulletin, 1914, No. 29. Whole Number 603
United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The essential importance of the kindergarten in every institution which has the care of children and its value in simplifying administration and in making the work of healing, training, or correction easier, quicker, and more permanent, appear clearly in the excerpts provided in this bulletin from letters sent to the Bureau of Education, in response to an inquiry, by officials of every kind of institution for child betterment. There is a wide variety in the kinds of organizations represented: Social settlements, industrial schools, orphanages, day nurseries, homes for dependent and neglected children, hospitals, and institutions for defectives; and there is an equally wide variety in the kinds of children these organizations serve--deaf, blind, crippled, and feebleminded of every race, nativity, and creed. Their ages vary from that of earliest infancy to 21 years. The experience of all these has been the same--that the properly adapted kindergarten, in properly trained hands, supplies the humanizing factor absolutely necessary for solving their problems with any approach to completeness. "Why Should the Kindergarten be a Part of the School System" is appended. [Best copy available has been provided.]
