Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 8 January 2020

That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendour during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open himself to life.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 52
