A Statistical Study of the St. Finbar Nursery School Families, Brooklyn, 1948
The analogy between this poem, which was written in the eighteenth century, and the modern nursery school is obvious. Just as: children enjoy themselves in the nursery school, so also, they make the nursery school a happy setting. And happy settings are very important for our children of today. There, they will learn that the big outside world is just as nice as the world they live in at home. If the world they come from daily, is. not too nice, they will learn that the bigger world is a pleasant one. For as they learn to accept and trust the outer world, they will be taught an essential lesson in happiness. Perhaps if this lesson could be extended to every child, the eternal problems of the world might be solved.
