Birthdays And Anniversaries For April 21st + Kindergarten Day
If it's your birthday today, congratulations! You share the same date as one of country music's greats. Glen Campbell, born in Delight, Arkansas in 1936. A session guitarist in the mid-1960s, he gains his own network television show and a string of crossover hits, ultimately landing in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Happy 79th, Glen!
It's Kindergarten Day!
Most kids and their parents will never forget their first day at Kindergarten. Hopefully, it was a good experience for everyone!
We celebrate this day in honor of Friedrich Froebel, who was born on this date in 1782. He started the first Kindergarten in Germany. It caught on quickly. Kindergartens were originally designed to be a half day to get kids acclimated to learning, social interaction and school, in a fun, yet educational manner. From there, they have evolved in most areas to a full time program. Mainly due to an increase in working mothers in America. Celebrate today, by taking a trip down memory lane with your own experience in Kindergarten.
