Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 6 April 2021

We say this to the teachers in training who enter the Children’s House. ‘Stand by, remain silent, and do not speak a word to the children, do not make any noise. Here the children are in their own world, you must observe simply by looking, you must not wish to judge, correct, or teach. It is only in this way that you can enter into the spirit and practice of the teacher.’

Maria Montessori, Maria Montessori Speaks to Parents, p. 17
