Maria Sophie Schäfers; Claas Wegner – Global Education Review, 2024
Over the past decades, the demand for scientific research to link theory and practice so that innovative solutions can be developed through research has steadily increased (Klees & Tillmann, 2015; Sandoval & Bell, 2004). In this context, the design-based research (DBR) approach was developed, which examines the research object and the…

May, Helen – Global Education Review, 2022
Miss Isabel Little was a Scottish infant teacher who immigrated to New Zealand in 1912. She was described as a "Froebel trained Scot from Edinburgh" and known around Wellington education circles for her "modern methods". In contrast to known Froebelian pioneers, Miss Little's historical footprint is light but the few glimpses…

MacLure, Maggie; MacRae, Christina – Global Education Review, 2022
The paper brings Froebel's philosophy into conversation with that of Deleuze. We focus on "the fold" and "on self-activity" as key concepts that hold a special place in the monist philosophies of both thinkers. One point at which their (very different) ontologies coincide is their conceptualization of a cosmos in which…

Castner, Daniel; Maron-Puntarelli, Cecilia – Global Education Review, 2022
For early childhood educators, few individuals have more historical significance than Friedrich Froebel. Froebelian approaches traveled across the Atlantic and inspired early childhood educators in the United States during the progressive era. Although early childhood professionals in the United States still celebrate the inventor of kindergarten,…

Sillanpää, Taina; Visuri, Fredrika; Ruokonen, Inkeri – Global Education Review, 2022
Historically, Finnish early childhood education has been largely based on Friedrich Froebel's pedagogy. However, Froebelian pedagogy is no longer as well known in Finland as it once was. We at the Kindergarten Museum in Helsinki wanted to increase awareness of the Froebelian tradition. Together with artist Alexander Reichstein, we came up with the…

Josephidou, Joanne; Kemp, Nicola – Global Education Review, 2022
The holistic relationship between children and nature is at the heart of Froebel's philosophy and practice: he took for granted that young children would grow up "in" and "with" nature. This paper explores the contemporary relevance of this thinking to babies and toddlers in early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings.…

Johansson, Jan-Erik – Global Education Review, 2022
How can we use Friedrich Froebel's play theory in order to analyze ECEC, Early Childhood Education and Care? Wolfgang Klafki builds his theory of categorical "Bildung" on Froebel's play theory, which presupposes the interaction between child, adult and content, as in the didactic triangle. Froebel's play theory was lost in the hands of…

Cameron, Kristen; Boyles, Deron – Global Education Review, 2022
Contemporary Froebelian-inspired early childhood education in the United States is challenged by government regulation and accreditation requirements that have arisen alongside neoliberalism in education. Using Critical Policy Analysis and case study examples from a preschool in Atlanta, Georgia, this paper examines the influence of neoliberalism…

Flemig, Sophie; McNair, Lynn – Global Education Review, 2022
In this article, we engage with a question that has occupied the professional, policy, and popular discourse on education and socialization: are a child's development potential and outcomes contingent on innate abilities ("nature") or environment ("nurture") (Plomin, DeFries, & Fulker, 1988; Stiles, 2011; Tabery, 2014;…

Howe, Sally – Global Education Review, 2022
The purpose of this theoretical paper is to examine the links between the philosophical underpinnings of Froebelian pedagogy (where pedagogy is understood as the basis on which early childhood practices are developed) and the pedagogy of a recent movement in environmental education for young children; the Common Worlds Research Collective. Current…

Håberg, Liv Ingrid Aske – Global Education Review, 2022
In the Scandinavian tradition, "how" children learn is of much greater importance than "what" children. However, this study seeks primarily to investigate "what to learn" as opposed to "how to learn." The matter of what topics are most valued is under-researched, particularly in regard to kindergarten…

Wasmuth, Helge – Global Education Review, 2022
What does it mean to be a Froebelian in the 21st century? It is not a new question but one that is more urgent than ever. Not only since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic but for years, young children and their well-being have been thrust aside, and Early Childhood Education and Care worldwide has been treated as subordinate. The Global Education…

Ndijuye, Laurent Gabriel; Mligo, Ignasia Renatus; Machumu, Maregesi A. Manyonyi – Global Education Review, 2020
Globally, there is consensus among education stakeholders that early childhood education sets a foundation for children's development, learning, and future life achievements. While global perceptions of early childhood care and education (ECCE) have been broadly explored in other parts of the world, little is known about ECCE in Tanzania even…

Mikuska, Éva; Fairchild, Nikki – Global Education Review, 2020
Technocratic accountability, which is impacting ECEC practices in England, is where the government favors evidence-based knowledge to work with children. As a result, the emotional aspect of ECEC work and emotional labor have become increasingly complex and are sometimes unrecognized. In this paper we highlight the importance of more relational,…

Whitty, Pam; Lysack, Monica; Lirette, Patricia; Lehrer, Joanne; Hewes, Jane – Global Education Review, 2020
We are five early childhood researchers, from across Canada, thrown together amongst a series of alarming discourses, where developmental, economic, and neuroscientific rationales for ECEC drown out alternative theoretical perspectives, as well as personal experience, values, subjective knowledges, and the fierce passion we feel for our work. In…
