PREFACE.

THE Infant Model and Training School was established by the Commissioners of National Education, in March, 1838; and was arranged and organized under the immediate superintendance of Mr. Wilderspin. During the fourteen years that it has been in operation, the want of some treatise on the methods of instruction pursued, for the guidance of teachers trained in the establishment, has been much felt. To supply this deficiency, the writer, as master of the school, has been authorized by the Commissioners to prepare the following pages. They contain as much of the theory and practice of teaching as is needed for the proper management of Infant Schools; and the same mode of training, lessons, and apparatus, are equally applicable to the junior classes in male and female schools ; so that where, from local causes, Infant Schools may not yet have been established, preparatory classes taught on the same principles may be beneficially formed in such schools as already exist.
