Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 3 December 2019

When children experience pleasure not only from an activity leading towards a special goal but also in carrying it out exactly in all its details, they open up a whole new area of education for themselves. In other words, preference should be given to an education of movement: practical activities are simply an external incentive to the educational process, they provide a motive and urge the child to organise his movements.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 87
