Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 14 September 2020

Knowledge can best be given when there is eagerness to learn, so this is the period when the seed of everything can be sown, the child's mind being like a fertile field, ready to receive what will germinate into culture. But if neglected during this period, frustrated in its vital needs, the mind of the child becomes artificially dull, henceforth to resist imparted knowledge.

Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential, p. 4
