Famous quotes containing the word montessori:

    We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master.
    —Maria Montessori (1870–1952)

    If an educational act is to be efficacious, it will be only that one which tends to help toward the complete unfolding of life. To be thus helpful it is necessary rigorously to avoid the arrest of spontaneous movements and the imposition of arbitrary tasks.
    —Maria Montessori (1870–1952)

    There is ... in every child a painstaking teacher, so skilful that he obtains identical results in all children in all parts of the world. The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!
    —Maria Montessori (1870–1952)
