Inscription.  Miss Caroline Louise Frankenberg (1806- 1882) brought the kindergarten concept from Germany to Columbus in 1836. She returned to Germany for further study, then established the school at the S.E. corner of Rich and Pearl Alley in 1858. The Kindergarten (“Children's Garden”) is based on the philosophy of Friedrich Froebel who emphasized the importance of children’s play and active involvement in learning.
