Montessori Quote of the Day

Montessori Quote

The child is like a newborn animal, because he cannot behave like the men around him. In the first two years the child’s behavior is like that of the kitten in the first few days. It takes him two years to construct something in his personality. He has the possibility of developing himself in accord with the human species.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 94
