"Scientific observation then has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment."

Dr Maria Montessori

"the environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences."

Dr Maria Montessori
