Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 25 July 2020

Growth and psychic development are therefore guided by: the absorbent mind, the nebulae and the sensitive periods, with their respective mechanisms. It is these that are hereditary and characteristic of the human species. But the promise they hold can only be fulfilled through the experience of free activity conducted in the environment.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p. 96
