Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 16 December 2020

In the period of early childhood they are urged by nature itself to co-ordinate the movements of the hands, as is seen in their urge to touch everything, to take everything in their hands and to play with everything. The hand of the child in the "play-age" is led by life itself to lend itself to indirect preparation for writing.

Maria Montessori, The Formation of Man, p. 91
