Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 22 October 2021

The child is a great worker. The child is important, not because he needs our love, not because he needs our protection, not because he is a poor beggar, but because he is the creator of man. The child is important, for his powers, though mysterious, are intelligible. We must understand the child’s needs in order to be of help to him.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 40
