Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 23 July 2021

If we truly consider education to be the development of latent possibilities, rather than using the word education, we should adopt another: cultivation. The educator must cultivate the potentialities existing in the child, so they may develop and expand. It is essential to take advantage of this highly sensitive period in the life of the human being if, indeed, humanity is to improve.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 76
