Imagination Inspired

A child is mysterious and powerful; And contains within himself the secret of human nature.

~Maria Montessori

 

Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that children have extraordinary powers of mind.  She called it “the absorbent mind.”  Children learn by doing – they pursue their tasks independently either in a group or alone.  Dr. Montessori believed that a child who is allowed to develop his or her personality freely and independently, who is encouraged to investigate and try new things would grow to be a responsible and creative adult.
