Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 12 October 2021

The child has the capacity to educate himself, not in typical schools with their exact syllabuses where children must be obedient, but at a school where he is not controlled, does not have to compete, but can work with enthusiasm according to natural laws. If we do not know these laws and respect them, then we are in danger of spoiling this great work of the child’s.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 52
