Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 20 August 2021

Once the teacher understands that mysterious powers exist within the child, and that these reveal themselves spontaneously through the child’s activities, his attitude will change, no longer being that of a superior toward an inferior; for he will realise that here is a treasure that must be allowed to yield benefits. Humanity is in dire need of this new type of educators.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 97
