An Early Wellington Kindergarten

Geraldine McDonald

What was it like to be in kindergarten in the early days? Over many years NZCER has been interested in recording the atmosphere and style of our educational institutions in former times. For this reason we are delighted to publish the reminiscences of Miss Edna (Ted) Scott, a much loved kindergarten teacher in Wellington for over thirty years. We hope it will encourage others who have made contributions to education in this country to share their memories with us.
We would like to thank Ted Scott, who spoke so vividly of her time in kindergarten and allowed us to choose photographs from her collection; Marjorie Connell for help with the task of data collection; Joyce Barns for assistance with the location of supporting material, and the Wellington Free Kindergarten Association for permission to reproduce material from their records.
