Kindergarten Blocks Gift Set 7

Anne L. Page along with Elizabeth Peabody and Mary Peabody Mann formed the American Froebel Society. Their goal was to establish kindergarten schools as well as academies to train future teachers. Besides Maud Whitman, other graduates of the Anne L. Page Academy included Edith Lesley, founder of Lesley College.

In 1913 Anne’s students who taught at Wellesley College raised funds to build the Anne L. Page Memorial School for Early Education which still exists today on the campus.
