Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 18 August 2020

Now what we need to know is the character of the child's work. When a little child works he does not do so to attain an outward end. The aim of his work is the working, and when in his repetition of an exercise he brings it to an end, this end is independent of external factors... his work is the satisfaction of an inner need, a phenomenon of psychic maturation.

Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood, p. 204
