Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 21 May 2021

When they arrive in the morning, there are many things to attend to. The children look after the classroom. They sweep with their own small brooms and dust and scrub and polish. Then there is their personal cleanliness. When a child’s hands are dirty, we do not take him to the basin and wash his hands or hold his face while we do the washing. The children learn to do these things for themselves as a matter of course.

Maria Montessori, Maria Montessori Speaks to Parents, p. 48-49
