OUR FREE KINDERGARTENS.
Little Is Known of Scranton's Ad
vanced Educational Methods for
tii--. Children of the Poor.
Through the courtesy of a lady be
lougiug to the Bcrantou Free Kinder
garten association, a Thill m; reporter
was yesterday conducted through the
school at dl!S Washington avenue and
shown some of the benefits arising from
the object-letaou educational features
as applied iu kindergarten sobools.
lho Washington avenue school room
has recently been renovated, is well
lighted and thoroughly comfortable for
the eighty little ones who are instruct
ed there every week day morning, ex
cepting Saturday. The association has
started a branch school in the Si-cond
Presbyterian church chapel, on Adams
aveuue, near the jail. At this school
forty-eight pupils are accommodated
Mia Mary C. Silisbury, of Cleve
land, thoroughly versed in the scien
title ftaturos ot kindergarten instnic
lion, has charge of the Washington
avenue school, and is assisted by nine
yonug ladies. These young ladies are
undergoing a course of instruction in
kindergarten teaching principles, and
meet several afternoons during each
week for lessons from Miss Salisbury
1UE iltlllUNE will soon publisu tne
annual statement of the association
whieh will partiaulariz the work aud

the school. No material assistance has
be.en given the association for nearly it
year by outside parties, and. while
none has been nbeolutuly necessary
anybody charitably disposed cun now
find iu the Free Klnderarteu associa
tion a good cliunuel lor their beuevo
One of the ladies prominently identi
fied with the school spoke of its bene
fits as follows:
''Many people seem to have an idea
that a kindergarten is simply a play
lionsa where young children can be
amused und kept under healthful aud
pleasing restraint This would indeed
be a blessing to thousands of little ones
and a groat boon to young mothers who
wish to make their children happy vi.5
yet do not know exactly how to accom
plish this object. But the kindergarteu
does far more: it lays the basis for a
thoroughly solid education and, we
claim, shortens the collegiate course at
least two or three vears.
It is to develop tii child and all Its
faculties in a natural manner, while
checking all propensities to evil. Tne

analogous to the treatment of plants by
i skillful gardener, it l to prevent
any undue strain on children powers,
mental or physical; to toach by luvans
f object lessous convyei in plays
rather than by books, it is to form a
well balanced mind, to discern and
bring out gently, but surely, any lateut
aptitude for intellectual acquirements,
artistic gifts, or manual skill. It is to
partially relieve pareuts of Blender
means of the charge of their very young
children for part of the day, and dur
ing that time to train them properly.
it is finally to prepare children for
school, to fit them for learning more
readily, to sow the first seeds that are
to produce adults of sound mind in a
sound body- good citizens and true
