“The hand is the instrument of intelligence. The child needs to manipulate objects and to gain experience by touching and handling.”
“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.”
- Maria Montessori
“Do not tell them how to do it. Show them how to do it and do not say a word. If you tell them, they will watch your lips move. If you show them, they will want to do it themselves.”
“Play is the work of the child”
“What the hand does, the mind remembers”
