Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 6 October 2019

The discovery that the child has a mind able to absorb on its own account produces a revolution in education. We can now understand easily why the first period in human development, in which character is formed, is the most important. At no other age has the child greater need of an intelligent help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p. 26
