Generations of New Zealanders have memories of themselves or their children at kindergarten, and new memories are being made every day. The first kindergartens appeared here in colonial times—a revolutionary idea imported from Germany that suggested children would unfold through play. This book tells the story of how those ideas were adopted, adapted, and thrived in New Zealand.
