Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 20 July 2021

We have the idea that education can help the development of the child, and that we adult people will give this help. That is the ordinary idea of education. This idea is not a right idea, because it concludes that the adult can help this little child very much with his own wisdom and care. The idea of education is to give to the child and to young people all the best that we have.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 44
