Dr. Montessori on Children

Dr. Maria Montessori had some of the most beautiful ideology forming into poetic words in regard to the child. Here are but a few of those words (excuse the non-all inclusive language):

“Little children from the moment they are weaned are making their way toward independence.”

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”

“It is the child who makes the man, and no man exists who was not made by the child he once was.”

The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiments.”

…and my favorite…”The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind.”
