Infants & Toddlers

 Maria Montessori stated, ¨Education is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life¨ .

We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit.
