Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 6 June 2020

A system of education that is based on liberty ought to aim at assisting a child in obtaining it, and should have as its specific aim the freeing of the child from those ties which limit its spontaneous manifestations. Little by little, as a child proceeds along this way, he will freely manifest himself with greater clarity and truth and thus reveal his own proper nature.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 57
