It's Maria Montessori's birthday today! Dr. Montessori's words continue to inspire!

“The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.” (The Absorbent Mind)

You'll find lots of Montessori quotes along with many Montessori word art freebies here:
