Category book

By Dr Peter Weston, 2002.

The publication of The Froebel Educational Institute: the Origins and History of the College by Dr Peter Weston marks the first definitive history of Froebel College, now part of the University of Roehampton.

The book traces the history of the College from its founding in West Kensington in 1892, through its move to Grove House, Roehampton, in 1921, and concluded with the formation of the University of Surrey Roehampton in 2000 of which the college was an integral part.

It highlights the College's interaction with social, political and educational changes in a wider context, and argues for the continued relevance of Froebelian values and principles in educational practice at all ages and times.

The book has 106 illustrations.
