Quote of the day: “What more could a parent want for his child?"


“Through a Montessori education, a child comes to realise that he lives in an orderly universe and that he can understand and succeed if he tries. He learns the value of being observant and exerting effort, the importance of forming accurate concepts of the things he encounters, the joy of writing and reading, and the fascinating nature and practicality of maths. Through a Montessori education, the child takes the first crucial steps on the road to becoming an independent, self-sustaining, life-loving adult. What more could a parent want for his child?"
—Heike Larson, from her article ‘The Montessori Method: Educating Children for a Lifetime of Learning and Happiness’ at The Objective Standard
