Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 24 June 2021

The child realises that through his own efforts he can be independent and achieve things he has set his mind to. And gradually we educators are confronted with a simple but important fact: that to help the child is not what he needs, and indeed that to give help is an impediment for the child. Therefore he must be allowed to act freely on his own initiative in this free environment.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 34
