Abstract/Notes: Purpose In Australia as elsewhere, kindergarten or pre-school teachers’ work has almost escaped historians’ attention. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the lives and work of approximately 60 women who graduated from the Adelaide Kindergarten Training College (KTC) between 1908 and 1917, which is during the leadership of its foundation principal, Lillian de Lissa. Design/methodology/approach The paper is a feminist analysis and uses conventional archival sources. Findings The KTC was a site of higher education that offered middle class women an intellectual as well as practical education, focusing on liberal arts, progressive pedagogies and social reform. More than half of the graduates initially worked as teachers, their destinations reflecting the fragmented field of early childhood education. Whether married or single, many remained connected with progressive education and social reform, exercising their pedagogical and administrative skills in their workplaces, homes and civic activities. In so doing, they were not only leaders of children but also makers of society. Originality/value The paper highlights the links between the kindergarten movement and reforms in girls’ secondary and higher education, and repositions the KTC as site of intellectual education for women. In turn, KTC graduates committed to progressive education and social reform in the interwar years.

Abstract/Notes: Unless we sincerely believe that the children we teach today in the final few years of the 20th century are exactly the same children she taught in the Casa in Rome in the first decade of this same century, then we should be willing, if not compelled, to reexamine the didactic materials and their use to meet our children's needs. Interpretations of its role will range all the way from a strict view of the presentation and use of each piece as an essential element of a well-designed and complete curriculum for children to the view of some that didactic materials are to be used in any way that seems interesting to the child and reasonable to the teacher. (1964, pp. 167-168) Montessori (1965) talks about the didactic apparatus as providing a stairway to abstraction, and she charges the teacher with being such an astute observer of the child that she or he can know when the child is ready to receive a new piece of material which will provide [them] with a new way to organize [their] thinking. In all cases, Montessori talks about the didactic materials as providing a control of error which will lead the learner to organize thinking in a new and more advanced way.
