From Wikipedia

Lesley University is a private university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lesley University is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education.History 1909–1998: Lesley School/College and the School of Practical Art/Art Institute of Boston The Lesley School was founded by Edith Lesley in 1909 at her home at 29 Everett Street, Cambridge. The school began as a private women's institution that trained kindergarten teachers. As such, it espoused the work of Friedrich Froebel, who invented the concept of kindergarten as a complement to the care given to children by their mothers. Teacher and writer Elizabeth Peabody opened Boston's first Froebel-inspired kindergarten in 1860; more kindergartens followed. Central to the Froeblian philosophy is the idea that individuals are important and unique, a focus that remains today at Lesley University.
