Montessori Quote

We must, for this reason, take great care in this early period when nothing shows in the external life. If anything is lacking in these first two years the result may be that the child is unable to adapt to the environment, to find the guide which corresponds to heredity in the animals. During this time sensitivity to the social conditions of his group is constructed.
