Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 28 October 2020

[An] interesting fact to be observed in the child of six is his need to associate himself with others, not merely for the sake of company, but in some sort of organised activity. He likes to mix with others in a group wherein each has a different status. A leader is chosen, and is obeyed, and a strong group is formed. This is a natural tendency, through which mankind becomes organised.

Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential, p. 4
