Montessori Quote

The newborn child shows a sudden, energetic, marvelous development in the first period; after that, his development is less impressive. The greatest development occurs from birth to three years; then from three to six years of age his development is more peaceful. The first period is like a preparation for the second, or conversely, the second period completes the first.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 43
