"The greatest of the human personality begins at the hour of birth, so education must start from birth."
"The education of a very small child does not aim at preparing him for school but for life."
"Education is not something which a teacher does, but it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in human beings. The first thing a child’s education demands is the provision of an environment in which he can develop the powers given him by nature."
"The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination."
- Maria Montessori
