Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 8 October 2019

Children have an anxious concern for living beings, and therefore the satisfaction of this instinct fills them with delight. It is therefore easy to interest them in taking care of plants and especially of animals. Nothing awakens foresight in a small child, who lives as a rule for the passing moment and without care for the morrow, so much as this.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 73
