“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six.”

– Maria Montessori

“The word education must not be understood in the sense of teaching but of assisting the psychological development of the child.”

– Montessori Children's House

“The first duty of an education is to stir up life, but leave it free to develop.”

– Maria Montessori

“Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”

– Montessori Children's House
