Kindergarten is where students begin the educational path. They learn about getting around a school building, sharing, cleaning up after themselves, following a schedule, obeying rules, and making friends. For a young child, these are huge milestones to conquer without the help of a parent.
Friendswood ISD teachers welcome their new Kinder students on the first day of school.

Why Kindergarten Teachers are Special
Kindergarten teachers leave an indelible mark on students hearts. Kindergarten teachers use exciting, fun, engaging hands-on teaching methods. They incorporate games, music, books, art, and computers into daily lessons. They ensure that children enjoy their school day every day, and they lay the foundation to love learning.
National Kindergarten Day
Why do we celebrate on April 21st?
April 21 is the birthday of Wilhelm August Frobel (1782-1852), the founder of kindergarten. Frobel’s first kindergarten opened in 1837 in Germany. He coined the term “kindergarten”, which combines the German “kinder” (children) and “garten” (garden). Frobel said “Children are like tiny flowers; they are varied and need care, but each is beautiful alone and glorious when seen in the community of peers.”
