CATHERINE ESTHER BEECHER :
Catherine Beecher was the daughter of outspoken religious leader Lyman Beecher. Her numerous other well-known family members include sister Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe, the 17th century abolitionist and writer most famous for her groundbreaking novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Throughout her life Catherine Beecher was renowned for her forthright opinions on women’s education as well as her vehement support of the many benefits of the incorporation of a kindergarten into children’s education.
Beecher strongly supported allowing children to be just that and not prematurely forcing adult responsibilities onto them. She believed that children lacked the experience needed to make important life decisions and that in order for them to become healthy self-sufficient adults they needed to be allowed to express themselves freely in an environment suited to children. It was these beliefs that lead to her support of the system of Kindergartens. For more on Catherine Beecher, click here.
