Encouraging Each Child's Potential
"Ours was a house for children, rather than a real school. We had prepared a place for children where a diffused culture could be assimilated, without any need for direct instruction...Yet these children learned to read and write before they were five, and no one had given them any lessons. At that time, it seemed miraculous that children of four and a half should be able to write, and that they should have learned without the feeling of having been taught."
-Dr. Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
